BELONGS TO CATEGORIES Fruit trees

Reine Claude Dorée is a French variety of greengage with large, round fruit of green to greeny-yellow fruit of delicious, sweet and juicy taste. It ripens at the end of August.

It flowers in May and is not self-fertile. It means that it needs another plum tree variety nearby as a pollinator. It can be kept smaller by pruning. Young trees should be pruned to help the branches get strong enough to hold the fruit. Fully hardy to -27°C.
