Noberte damson trees

(Nobertier, Norbert)
Prunus domestica

Noberte is a traditional culinary plum, thought to originate from the Ardennes region. It has a sharp flavour which becomes rich and tangy when cooked. It is ideal for jams, preserves, and plum tarts.

The attractive dark-blue plums are small in size but borne in abundance. The flesh is a yellow/green, and the stone clings to the flesh.

Noberte shares many characteristics with the damson-style plums found in England and can be used for similar purposes.
