Plum Trees - Green Gage #5 Pot

It is impossible to overstate the uniqueness of this plum.  Its intense sweetness and scarcity has made it the truffle of plums. An all time favorite, Green Gage or Reine Claude (European Plum) is a small European plum tree with a low canopy clothed in elliptic, finely serrated, bright green leaves. In mid spring, it bursts into a profusion of sweetly fragrant, white 5-petaled blossoms, creating a spectacular display. They are followed in mid to late summer by a heavy crop of small to medium, oval, freestone, yellowish green plums with an amber flesh. Juicy, sweet and delicious, the plums have a very rich flavor and are perfect for eating right off the tree. The Green Gage is a very popular old fashioned English plum that grows well over a wide range of climates. Though self-fertile the Green Gage plum yields more heavily when pollinated with another cultivar. The tree requires 300-400 chill hours and typically grows up to 15-20 ft. tall and wide.
