Partially sell fertile but crops at its best with the pollinators: Victoria, Czar or Opal. 'Cambridge Gage' is a popular variety, similar to the traditional 'Old Green Gage', with a very fine flavour.
Single, cup-shaped white flowers appear in late spring, followed by yellow-green fruit with a superb, juicy flavour, which are ready for picking in early September.
As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from mid July onwards. This is not a disease, but is mainly due to this years contrasting weather conditions and will not affect the performance of the tree.

fruiting will usually be improved if there is a compatible partner:
Cambridge Gage, Czar, Merryweather, Mirabelle de Nancy, Victoria
