Green Gage Plum

Prunus domestica 'Green Gage'

The Green Gage plum has been an American favorite since the time of Jefferson. It's yellowish-green fruit is small to medium and oval in shape with a juicy, smooth texture, amber flesh. Considered the ideal dessert plum, it is also good cooked, canned, or preserved. Ripens ahead of Stanley and Italian prunes.

Named after the wife of Emperor Francis I of France and imported into England in the 18th Century by Sir Thomas Gage, who gave the plum it's current English name.
