Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa)
Origin : Europe (from Scandinavia and British Islands to Italy)
Environment : forest edges; on moist, calcareous soils
Climate : mild, temperate, cool
Also known as Sloe, the Blackthorn is the European wild plum, diffused all over the continent and islands. It grows in very thick hedges that are impossible to penetrate because of the sharp thorns. The fruits are very nourishing but sour, and nowadays mostly used for jams and to flavour Gin, but in the past, Vikings had them as a primary food source.
