will the deer like this tree?
Cindy H on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Deer browse on all woody plants and they love the lush new growth
especially. If you can protect the tree until it gets large which could be
a few years then there is no doubt that you will get some plums.
What color flesh?
Steven H on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Damsons have a golden flesh like other European plums.

Dwarf Damson Plum from Satrk Bros
Damson is the ONLY plum for jam. Left one behind when we moved and have searched for the true Damson. A Std gets very large so hope the dwarf will be easier maintenance and as good. The whip is smaller than expected but strong , healthy, and (thank you) unpruned. It''l be a few years before I can write a true review of the tree and fruit
