Green Gage Plum
Inventory, lb : 0
Greengage plums are small, averaging 2 to 4 centimeters in diameter, and have a round, ovate, to oval shape with curved shoulders and a slightly flattened base. The plum’s skin is smooth, taut, and thin, ranging in color with variegated hues of green, yellow, to gold. The skin may also showcase dark red speckling, a pale blue to grey bloom, or amber blushing, depending on the variety. Underneath the surface, the flesh is dense, finely-textured, aqueous, and succulent, bearing yellow-green hues with a translucent quality. Greengage plums have a tender consistency when ripe, also encasing a light brown pit that can be easily removed from the center of the flesh. The plums are known for having a high sugar content, measuring between 30 to 38 Brix. 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.
Transparent Gage plum is available in the mid-summer months.
