Abergwyngregyn Damson

History & Discovery

A single tree grows at the college farm site on the Menai Straits at Abergwyngregyn near Llanfairfechan. It is perhaps over two hundred years old, yet it is remarkably disease free. It produces an abundance of good sized dark purple fruit of excellent flavour. The tree itself is quite remarkable (see picture inset opposite); the trunk is hollow and split open down one side (perhaps a lightning strike). Much of the wood is woodwormed. The trunk also has many fist sized holes. On top of the old trunk grows an "s" shaped younger section which regularly bears the blemish free fruit.

Fruit

Excellent eaten raw or made into a deep ruby coloured jam. Presumably self fertile. Pick and use September / October.
