Damson plums are not commonly available in the shops, maybe they are too oldfashioned? I have seen them advertised on rare occasions on roadside signage in the countryside. The Auckland Swiss Club has connections to a grower in Whakatane and organised a supply for us. They were put to good use by Mrs H.

(Fortune plums, quite a bit larger, are a good substitute for Damson plums.)
