Yes, SRS. I suppose gage is a subgroup of plums. They are usually smaller than say a Victoria Plum and green or yellow in colour. They are often very sweet and some will have it that the green gages are the best tasting of all the plums. I’m not sure they are the easiest to grow though and our green gage tree is not very reliable. That said, the oullins gage we have is supposed to offer a similar taste with better reliability but that one has rarely cropped here either.
We would be making a jam with them. The stones come away as the jam cooks.
