Merryweather Damson Fruit Tree
Merryweather (Prunus domestica 'Merryweather'), introduced in 1907, is an extremely versatile damson providing copious volumes of plum-type fruits identifiable by their purple-blue-black skin and marvellous, juicy yellow flesh. Furthermore, Merryweather has a strong, acid flavour which makes it very valuable for cooking purposes. This damson is reasonably self-fertile, however, to be assured success, we recommend another plum is planted close.
Supplied at about 1.25 metres to 1.75 metres in the 12 Litre version, slightly smaller for the 3 litre Maiden pot size which is supplied in a 3 litre container.
