Gage Cambridge Gage

Gage Cambridge Gage

A chance seedling discovered in the early 1920s in the Chivers orchards in Cambridgeshire, Gage Cambridge Gage is a reliable dual-purpose greengage which will do better in drier parts of the country. The fruit is smaller than a plum’s, round, light yellowish-green, with yellow and pink flushes, and with a definite bloom; flesh is yellowish-green, sweet and juicy, with a reasonably good flavour and a free stone. Moderately vigorous, neat tree; good, reliable cropper. Partially self-fertile, but will crop better with a pollination partner of a different variety. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
