European Plum : COUNT ALTHANN'S GAGE Semi-Dwarf (Marianna 26-24)


Out of stock

Unique, uncommon, and unusual are all apt adjectives for this hardy, highly flavoured and highly favoured gage type plum. First grown by a Count Althann's gardener in Swoyschitz, Bohemia, back in the 1850s, it is also known as 'Reine Claude Conducta' in some locations. The large, luminous, lavender-pink plum is certainly endowed with skin-deep beauty, but as one bites into the rich amber flesh, the real appeal becomes evident. Somewhat crisp and very sweet, it delivers delight in every juicy morsel. With proven hardiness, down to -35°C, Count Althann becomes a viable option for many backyard plum growers.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
