Considered the finest of all dessert plums, the cherry-sized Green Gage Plum has a delicate, sometimes translucent, yellow-green skin tinged with a rose pink that turns golden as the fruit ripens.

The fruit has a firm texture and a deliciously sweet, honeyed flavor. The English variety has been a favorite jam ingredient in Britain since the 1700s. These plums can be eaten out of hand or used to sweeten an array of baked goods.

Select unwrinkled, smooth-skinned fruit that is free of soft spots. Refrigerate ripe plums in a plastic bag and use within four days. Wash just before using.
