Growing Calendar for Old Fashioned Greengage - Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late May
The Old Greengage is a heritage British favourite much-loved for centuries and lauded as the best-tasting of all plum varieties- rich, juicy and full-flavoured.
Aside from taste the heavily-cropping fruit turns from leaf-green to a warming yellow indicating ripeness and the time to harvest.
This self-fertile variety produces fruit even when there are no other greengages in the area. This gives you peace of mind that you can look forward to fruit even when you plant your tree in isolation.
Eaten fresh from the tree, or collected and reduced into a traditional preserve you'll enjoy the fruits of your labour each and every year with fruit increasing in number with each and every season.
This Old Fashioned Greengage variety has a delicious, sweet and rich flavour with translucent flesh.
