Raised by the nurseryman Veitch of Langley, UK and introduced 1902. Received the RHS Award of Merit in 1902 and First Class Certificate in 1904. The name bullace continues to be used for this fruit although it is closer to the damsons in all respects.

Round to oblong fruit. Large for a bullace and more like a small damson. Blue-black bloomy skin. Firm, green flesh. Clinging stone. Sharp damson like flavour. Good for culinary use as a damson.

Vigorous tree. Very unusual growth habit. Branches tend to grow downwards from the trunk and become twisted.
