A well established and finest the Queen of Plums - The greengages are a group of cultivars of the common European plum. The first true greengage came from a green-fruited wild plum which originated in Iran. Greengages are grown in temperate areas and are known for the rich, confectionery flavour. They are considered to be among the finest dessert plums
Greengage plums have a sweet, honeyed, and syrup-like flesh combined with acidity, creating a balanced and pleasant flavor composed of dried apricot, ripe mango, and citrus marmalade nuances.
The Greengage plum is self-sterile, but needs a pollinator to set a crop. Plums, greengages and damsons are all Prunus domestica trees, and therefore they can all cross-fertilize, as long as they are compatible in terms of flowering time.
