The fruit is not elongated like a plum but does have a shallow groove down one side, similar to a plum. The fruits are smaller than a typical plum at 20-30mm in diameter. The fruits tend to ripen up to a rich red, although sometimes can be yellow. Ripening cherry plums in a hedgerow in Staffordshire in August. Photo: Paul Kirtley. Fasinu PS, Bouic PJ, Rosenkranz B.

Sadly, there are far fewer fraughan bushes today as hedgerows are removed to make room for more grazing space. It's illegal to clear more than 500m of hedgerows in Ireland without oversight by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, but significant damage has been done nonetheless, and the hedgerows that remain are not always healthy ecosystems.
