Coe's Golden Drop is arguably the very best flavoured of all dessert plums; it has a delicious sweet apricot like flavour. Golden Drop plums are a pretty golden-yellow speckled with a cinnamon coloured bloom, with a very sweet, rich, apricot-like flavour. The tree owes its name to its propagator Jervais Coe, the head gardener of the Gage estate at Bury St. Edmunds, who is said to have crossed a Green Gage with a White Magnum Bonum to have created it. It needs a sunny sheltered site to prosper and is self-sterile, so needs a pollinator.
