Green Gage Plum - Semi-dwarf (Fruiting) * SOLD OUT *
Prunus domestica 'Green Gage'
European plum. Jefferson strain root stock.Medium-sized, round with greenish-yellow skin. Very sweet, juicy flesh. Wide climatic range.
Sets heavy; self fertile; good pollinator. Ripens in July. The Greengage plum is deceptive in its looks, with colors of granny smith apples (suggesting tartness) mottled with fair rust colored dots and an unassuming petite apricot size. What is revealed is a historically excellent fruit, complex in taste and texture.
The Greengage plum has an amber green flesh nearly the same color of its skin, its texture unsurpassed in its tender firm quality, bursting with syrup-like juices when ripe. Its flavor candy sweet and extremely low acid.
