Description

Distinctive flavor! This old world plum variety has become a favorite again for its excellent eating quality and culinary versatility. The tree is a compact grower with attractive blossoms and deep green foliage. The yellow-green fruit has a rich plum-honey flavor. Great for canning, desserts and preserves, but you might not be able to resist eating them right off the tree. Freestone. Introduced to America from England in the late 1700s. Ripens in early August. Self-pollinating.

I had a standard-sized Green Gage Plum that was wonderful. Then a few years ago it committed suicide - it put out millions of plums (breaking its branches) and then died. Its plums were a dusky green-purple, golden inside, and delicious. I would freeze them and use them in crisps and desserts. Anyway, I wanted a self-fruitful one so I didn't have to buy two. And here it is!

I've never seen this kind of Plum tree before. I thought I'd give it a try. Taste is suppose to be very sweet.

Will the green Gage Plum ripen after it's picked?
Allen B on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Similar to a peach, but needs to be pretty far along when picked.
Do greengage blossoms emerge after the tree has fully leafed out, or do leaves/blossoms emerge simultaneously?
Clifford C on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In plum trees, the blooms tend to come on first, followed by the first new leaves. The blossoms and first leaves exist simultaneously for a short time before the blossoms fade and the tree fully leafs out.
when and what to spray on green gage plum trees to control diseases ?

Best growing tree in my orchard
I have about 300 trees and have purchased from many places. Stark Bros has been good the majority of the time. This one, however is a freak! I put it in the spring of 2014. It is 15' tall and 6' in wide in the crown. I don't have blooms yet but it's only been two years so I expect a good crop once it starts. I have lots of plum trees around it so it should have no problem pollinating. The trunk is already over 2" in diameter. Great tree.

Green gage
Well behaved healthy little tree. Only a couple plums last year, should be a few more this year (3rd year).
