Damson Tree Cultivars

Information about damson Tree Varieties (cultivars ) including pollination groups, type of fruit and cropping season

Damson TreesAll damson fruit trees are pollinated by insects, however, unlike many other types of fruit trees, most are self pollinating so choosing the right damson tree cultivars is a relatively easy task and the only major consideration is one of personal preference as to the flavour. The information below will  make it easy for you to  choose suitable damson tree(s).



Most damson trees are self fertile, i.e. they pollinate themselves with no need for another tree however do make sure to confirm this with the nursery or outlet from where you are buying your tree.
