- Heirloom clingstone variety
- Ripens in late August to early September

Vigorous heirloom variety produces heavy crops of gorgeous, very dark purple fruits with juicy, yellow flesh and a pleasing spicy-tart flavor. Small to medium plums have firm flesh, making them good for canning, fresh eating and desserts. The clingstone fruits ripen from late August to early September. While a self-pollinating variety, the Blue Damson Plum Trees will produce higher yields if more than one tree is planted. Requires 600 chill hours. Zones 5-7.

Quick-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers.
