Prunus insititia 'Shropshire Prune' is a hardy English variety of damson, also referred to as the Damson Prune. It is an old variety, first recorded in the 17th century. Shropshire Prune has a compact habit, with attractive damsons that makes delicious jam. Self Fertile. Damsons are more tolerant of wet soils than their close relations plums, and hardier, but are prone to silver leaf too.

We donate half of our profits on sales of Shropshire Prune damson trees to Common Ground

All our damson trees, including Shropshire Prune, are bare root. At the height of the lifting season - between November and March - there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for damson trees from March to September are confirmed in late October/ early November ready for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.
