Fruit : Sloe


Saturday 26 July, 2014 by Uncle Spike

What is called “Deli Erik” (or Wild Plum) here in Turkey is sort of a wild Sloe.

Most folk cut them down or graft them into ‘normal’ plum trees, but we love ’em. The skin is a little bitter, but they are still a tasty fruit to chomp as you walk around the garden. They also make a very good jam, just stone them and boil with sugar and add a little of our own fresh lemon juice at the end in place of commercial pectin!

    You must have an amazing orchard. How many trees of each thing do you have?

    These are very healthy but very sour and you can make very delicious juice from them 🙂


  3. Seems your farm is a botanical garden… so many variety of plants and trees, many of them unseen here in tropics.

    Thanks a lot for sharing the images and the notes, Uncle Spike 🙂
