Cambridge Gage gage trees

Prunus domestica
Cambridge Gage

Cambridge Gage is a classic English green gage, with a high quality gage-like flavor. It is a close substitute for the traditional Old Green Gage, but easier to grow.

Cambridge Gage ripens towards the end of August, and is equally good as a fresh dessert plum or for culinary purposes.

Growing and Training

Cambridge Gage is very similar to Old Green Gage in most respects but is generally found to be a more reliable cropper with consistent crops from year to year.

As with most green gages it prefers a dry climate and does best when planted in a sunny aspect.

Cambridge Gage is partially self-fertile (unlike Old Green Gage) but it helps if there is another pollinator nearby - the popular Victoria plum tree is a good choice.
