Description

Discovered by Mr Allgrove, nursery manager at the famous Veitch's Nursery at Langley, Bucks in 1915. A bud sport from a tree of Jefferson's gage, this shares many of the characteristics - green, sweet fleshed fruits produced on a compact, upright growing tree, but the fruit colour is a dark red, covered in small yellow spots like freckles.An unusual vareity of gage, well worth growing.This Self-sterile dessert Gage is believed to have originated from Buckinghamshire, UK in 1915
