Compact Green Gage plum trees produce fruit that is sublimely sweet. They are a naturally occurring hybrid of the European plum. The trees bear small to medium sized, oval, yellowish-green fruit with a smooth skin, juicy taste and freestone flesh. The tree is self-fertile, small with low branches and a rounded habit. The honey-plum flavour of the fruit lends itself well to canning, desserts, and preserves as well as eaten fresh and dried.
