Prunus insititia 'Farleigh' is a small heavy cropping damson; it produces lovely oval blue-black damsons with a purple bloom. The fruit has exceptional flavour. Farleigh damson trees are partially self-fertile, but fertility would be improved by planting with an appropriate pollinator like like Shropshire Prune. RHS AGM. Damsons are more tolerant of wet soils than plums and hardier, but are also prone to silver leaf.
