I have two Damson trees in my garden and I'm wondering when I can pick the fruit? I want to make Damson Jam or Damson Gin.
The two trees although very close to each other seem to be at different stages with the fruit. I'm not sure if I should just pick everything off both trees or wait until all the fruit is purple?
Also some fruit appears to have a fungus or mould forming, should I discard this fruit or is it still fine to make Damson Gin with?
ow and what is the sap like substance on the Damsons is that harmless or should I avoid using that fruit?
