Gage

Gages are small plums that have a more delicate constitution but with superior flavour and sugar content. Gage trees are often shy to crop but will have the occasional good year where patience will be rewarded.

We grow a combination of green, yellow and red fruiting forms which are available on semi-dwarf to semi-vigorous rootstocks. Fruits are sweet, soft and juicy! Great for cooking into jams, or can be eaten straight from the tree. The most popular garden varieties of gage trees are self-fertile. Can be grown in a container.

They do not require much pruning. A light prune in the summer just after fruiting is required for mature gages to encourage fruiting. For tree shaping, prune in the spring time just after the tree has come into leaf.
