Greengages like this one have always been more popular in France than the UK, with us preferring Victoria plums and damsons. However, don’t overlook this clone for very sweet juicy yellow fruits in late summer as they are hard to beat as a garden tree! White spring flower adds to its ornamental interest and its green leaves turn to yellow before leaf fall in the autumn.
Prunus domestica Reine-Claude d’oullins thrives best on free draining soils and both fruit flavour and size is enhanced by keeping weed and lawn competition away from the base of the tree. Fertilizing with a general purpose plant food in the spring is also beneficial. It makes a fine tree for a garden and as the fruits are edible there is no VAT on this clone.
Mature height: 3-7m
