Damson 'Westmorland Prune' (syn. 'Damson Prune', 'Shropshire Damson'), early September. The Westmorland damson is thought to be a type of Shropshire prune (possibly the 'Blue Violet') but improved by the unique conditions in Westmorland and pollination by the wild Bullace and Sloe. Westmorland damsons grow mainly in and around the Lyth and Winster valleys, south-west of Kendal in the English Lake District.
