Merryweather is the damson you are most likely to find in gardens. It is self fertile and makes lovely damson jams and chutneys. Merryweather is a heavy cropper; its large round blue-black fruit which are acidic but juicy. Damsons are more tolerant of wet soils than plums and hardier, but still prone to silver leaf.
