Blue plums

Damsons?

We have two trees with fruit like this – elongated, with a thick blue bloom, and tending to form pairs of conjoined twins.

I think they might be damsons. They have yellow flesh which doesn’t cling to the stone. They’re perfectly edible off the tree but don’t have a lot of taste.

They’re just starting to ripen now.

When I was choosing trees for the orchard, I was determined to have a lot of plum trees. I wonder if I maybe overdid it!
