Have you heard of Prunus Spinosa? No? Well… you should look into this hedgerow fruit, that you should! Why? Because that name means beware! The spinose part comes from the spines… thorny and sharp! So… be dared… go harvest a handful of sloes, as the fruit are known. Yep, the very same fruit that’s well known in the production of sloe gin! Sloe what? Aha… you’ll have to wait… that’s a story for another day!
Lovely little plums… against the October autumn sky! Plumbs? No… sloes… of the mouth numbing kind!
