Wednesday Word: Damson

Damson - noun.

This word kept popping up in a mobile game I play, so eventually I gave it a Google. I assumed damson must be an insect of some kind...but it's...a kind of plum!

Chiefly found in Europe, the damson used to be known as a damascene. Legend has it that the plums were introduced to Great Britain by Romans, although this link has not been firmly proven.
