History and description of Lindsey Gage

Lindsey Gage is a mid season greengage similar to Cambridge Gage. It is one of the sweetest and tastiest of gages. The fruit is round and small to medium sized. The skin is green with a bloom and less prone to cracking than Cambridge Gage. The flesh is a deep golden green, soft, juicy and very sweet. The tree is compact and bushy. Cropping is relatively light like most gages. Nevertheless the excellent flavour of the fruit makes it very worthwhile to grow.
