History and description of Denniston's Superb

Denniston's Superb was originally raised from an open pollinated Greengage at Prince's Nursery, Flushing, New York, USA c 1790 and named Imperial Gage. It is now usually known as Denniston's Superb, a name originally given to a possibly identical cultivar believed to have been raised by Isaac Denniston, Albany, New York c 1835.

Medium sized, oval-oblong, yellow fruit. Moderately juicy, golden flesh with excellent sweet flavour. Small semi-clinging stone.

Produces a hardy tree which is self-fertile and a heavy reliable cropper. It is also a good pollinator.
