Farleigh damson trees

Prunus insititia

Farleigh is a traditional English damson, and one of the heaviest-cropping of all the damsons.

The abundant fruit has the characteristic rich damson flavour when cooked.

It is also very cold-hardy and a good choice if you want to grow a fruit tree in a difficult situation.
