Old Fashioned Greengage
Often considered to have the ‘truest’ Greengage flavour, an old variety with remarkable taste but not so reliable and needs a pollinating partner.
Has a powerful, slightly tart flavour and perfumed aroma, suitable for eating fresh but also makes very fine preserves and pies. The flavour makes it all worthwhile.

As the name suggests, a traditional 'true' Greengag with a powerful, slightly tart flavour and perfumed aroma, sutiable for eating fresh but also makes very fine preserves and pies. Not the most reliable variety but the flavour makes it all worthwhile. Requires a pollinator such as Dennistons Superb, Victoria Plum or Opal plum. Pixy rootstock is dwarf and can be maintained at around 200cm's in height & width. It is an ideal choice for a smaller garden or intensive orchard and is also suitable for growing n a 24" container. St Julien is a vigorous tree making a more traditionally orchard-sized tree of around 280-300cm's in height and spread. A heavy cropping tree, ideal for lawn, grassy areas, paddock, etc. Fan trained Greengage trees are used against a wall; you will need not less than 160 x 180cm’s for a fan tree. Please note we do not supply ready trained trees; this product is a young tree suitable for training yourself, in situ. Such trees usually settle to cropping within 2 or 3 seasons. A favourable south or west facing aspect is recommended for Greengages.
