Cambridge gage

Cambridge Gage (Prunus domestica Cambridge) is a heavy cropping gage that originated in Cambridgeshire in 1927. It is one of the most popular greengages, very similar to the old fashioned greengage but more reliable. It is a good, vigorous grower that does set some fruit without a pollinator. Has received the Award of Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Single, cup-shaped white flowers appear in late spring, followed by yellow-green fruit which are ready for picking in early September. The fruits are large in size with a greenish yellow skin. The flesh is yellow, juicy, sweet and with an excellent rich flavour. Good as a dessert gage and for culinary purposes such as jam making.
