Gage Tree - Jefferson's Gage
Origin: New York, c.1825
Flowering Group : 1
Rootstock: St Julien A
Size : Bush
Harvest : September
Jefferson's Gage was raised by Judge Buel in Albany, New York. Early flowering dessert gage rated "excellent" by the RHS, with compact growth and heavy crops of juicy yellow-green fruit. Jefferson's Gage is self sterile; pollinators for it include (the less appetising) Victoria plum. Like their close but less tasty (and botanically indistinguishable) relations, plums, gages have lovely blossom which attracts a range of pollinators in spring, including bees.
We supply Jefferson's Gage as a bush plant - bigger than a maiden, a 2 or 3 year old plant with 3 - 5 stems.
