Count Althan's gage is an unusual and attractive red gage, often known by its alternative name Reine Claude Conducta.
It is widely regarded as one of the best-flavoured of all gages. It has a rich tangy sweetness, more reminscent of a high quality plum than a gage.
It stands apart from other gages in several respects - the fruits are larger, and while most gages are green or yellow, Count Althann's gage is an attractive dusky red pink color.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.
Let me know when Count Althann's Gage plum trees are back in stock.
If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Count Althan's gage is easy to grow but is not a heavy cropper. However this is not necessarily a bad thing because the flavours are more concentrated as a result.
