Read about these coveted varieties

A traditional favourite

Shropshire Plum Damson is the epitome of northern English damsons, with a particularly deep flavour and so many uses in the kitchen, from stewing, reducing and even eating fresh.

Shropshire Prune grow well in damp climates – not typical of tree fruits generally – so definitely worth growing when you live in areas of the UK that get heavier rainfall.

Harvest Shropshire Prune in early autumn to make jams and preserves and to create satisfying puddings as we go into autumn.

The perfect pollinating partner

Oullins Golden Gage plum grows well in the cooler climates of Britain so makes a great partner to Shropshire Plum Damson. A favourite that has withstood the test of time, Oullins Golden Gage has an 'exquisite flavour and handsome appearance' according to noted Victorian author James Hogg.

The fruit is a large gage, actually more like a small plum. It has a particularly warm golden hue, with red blushes – a treat to the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

Pick Oullins Golden Gage to eat fresh or prepare in the kitchen. Eaten fresh, the flesh is sweet and after ripening in the sun they can be more flavoursome than those you get in the supermarket. For cooking and baking, we suggest you pick them when they are firm to the touch.
