Damsons offer great health benefits as they have a good sauce of Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, E, K and high in Vitamin C which can all help support a healthy immune system.

They are a blue-black fruit that look like small plums. The wild varieties are extremely tart so not something you would pick and wasps love them.

The antioxidants in dried cranberries and grapes are twice as potent as in fresh fruit.

Make sure you check the sugar content of some of them in particular cranberries, as they can be very high.
