I have recently been given some greengages to eat. All I can say is that they are fruit from the gods.
I am going to try to grow one. Has anyone ever grown one and can give this old man some tips.
I am always ready to learn.
I always say the only time you stop learning is when your 6ft under.

Sounds interesting! Plums have done well here, but not other fruit trees. So maybe I should look into those!:)
