Pollinator FriendlyRHS Award of Garden Merit

Is this a gage or a yellow plum? In America, where it originates from, it is known as the Jefferson Gage.

This is a lovely variety producing large pale yellow-green fruits with a really juicy flavour. Fruit ripens over a period of a week or so at the end of August, giving the added benefit that they are not 'all ready at once'.

  • Season of use late August.
  • First introduced 1825, USA.
  • Self Sterile - requires a pollinator (another damson, gage or plum).
  • Grown on St Julien A rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 12 - 15 feet (3.65 - 4.6 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
