Inventory, lb : 0
Damson plums are available in the fall.
The Damson plum is an ancient variety of Prunus domestica that is primarily used in preserves and jam, rather than fresh eating. It is a late ripening ancestor of the larger and sweeter European plums. The name Damson is derived from the Syrian city of Damascus, where it is believed to have originated. These Damson plums are grown in Dinuba, CA by Burkart Farms.
Damson plums are a small variety approximately the size of a large cherry. They have dark blue, bloomy skins that are rich in acrid tasting tannins, and inner flesh that is tart and dry. Clearly not meant for a raw snack, these plums cook down into a rich and silky jam with hints of spice and berries.
