The Greengage is a cultivar of plum with a delightful taste and beautiful confectionary flavor. These fruits were first developed in the Moissac commune in France from Ganerik which is a wild plum species with green fruits native to Asia Minor. Sir William Gage was the first person to introduce these plums into Britain in 1724.

With its green to greenish yellow color, greengage plum is the first plum variety to be harvested.
