Blackthorn (prunus spinosa) produces small, round bluish-black fruits known as sloes. These begin to appear in early summer and ripen by Oct. They're normally picked after the first frosts as cold sweetens the sloes as they ripen further, but placing them in the freezer will do an equally good job. Traditionally used for flavouring gin. Zone 5-9
