Very old variety, rugged and dependable. One of the most popular plums to plant is the Blue Damson Plum tree, because it fruits every year and the tree bears early. The sour flavor of immature Blue Damson plums is often mixed with a panful of ripe Blue Damson plums for a delicious plum jelly. The Blue Damson plum is one of the most famous commercial blue fruits.
