Greengage Plums grow quite nicely here in Brookings, and Val Early loves sharing the fruit from her trees with OtterBee’s Market customers each year! “Early Orchard“, as we’ve taken to calling it, is a small back-yard-type operation that has grown up over the years to the point that Val can now share her bounty with others…

Greengage Plums are identified by their round-oval shape and smooth-textured, pale green flesh; they are on average smaller than round plums. The skin ranges in color from green to yellowish, with a pale blue “blush” in some cultivars. Greengages are grown in temperate areas and are known for the rich, confectionery flavor. They are considered to be among the finest dessert plums.
