Product Information

Originally grown in France in the mid-19th century, and often known by it's French name 'Reine Clauide d'Oullins', the 'Oullin's Golden Gage' is a great, self-fertile, garden variety for anyone to grow.

It prefers warmer weather than apples or pears, so will fruit later in the year, producing its attractive, golden-yellow, red-specked fruits in abundance in late summer. Very much sweeter and juicier than typical plums, it is a real sweet treat plucked fresh from the tree.

There is no greater pleasure than picking a plump, juicy plum straight from your own tree and popping it straight into your mouth! The firm, aromatic flesh is packed full of sweet fruitiness and the juice will delight your tastebuds! If you can resist eating them all, these versatile fruits are perfect for use in cooking, and will freeze well for using later.

Top Tips

  • Thin fruits in May and again in June for the best crops.

Care Information

  • Container grown trees can be planted at any time of year.
  • Position in a sheltered, sunny spot in well-drained soil.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone.
  • Plant you tree at the same level it was I the pot and water thoroughly until established.
  • Ensure that trees growing in pots do not dry out.
  • Consider protecting early blossom from frost by covering the tree with fleece during cold snaps.
  • As fruit begins to grow in May, thin by removing any that looks damaged and leave enough space between them so that they won’t touch as they grow. Check for further overcrowding a few weeks later.
  • Wasps are attracted to the fruit, so hang traps from late June.
  • Your plums will be ready to between in September and October.
    Prune in late spring or early summer, removing any dead or damaged branches.
