Size

Common blackthorn in a light pot, size of your choice.

The blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) is a rustic, thorny wild shrub also called black thorn, spruce or wild plum : it is not particularly one of those that we install in the garden but it can be useful. In the countryside, it is often integrated into wild hedges.

What is the blackthorn fruit?

Sloes, fruits of the blackthorn tree, are acidic and astringent due to their tannin concentration. Eating them raw is possible after the first frost, but in small quantities. They reveal all their sweetness and flavor when cooked.

Use. Blackthorn is astringent, diuretic, slightly laxative and anti-inflammatory. The infusion of dried flowers is depurative in cases of skin diseases and rheumatic conditions. It is also indicated as gargles for inflammation of the laryngo-oral mucous membranes.
