Davidson Plum

I was so excited to see these little purple/blue plums on the ground … our trees have fruited for the first time .

This Australian native plum makes the best jam in the world , other than quince of course. We have four trees growing three have fruit now and the other is in flower.











I have made one batch of Quince jelly with the first of the fallen fruit, I have not beaten the fruit flies but am able to cut around the pests and use most of the fruit.

One branch is so heavy with fruit that it has broken! I will have to weigh up the spoils when I pick them all.


I am keen to squash some of the over ripe plums on to a silk scarf and bundle it  up for a while, we have a rainy day here today so that will be a good indoor project ……
