Rosy Gage (NY 101) is a unique fresh-market plum bred by the late John Watson at the Cornell-Geneva research station. Perhaps the most elegantly flavored of all the plums grown on Station grounds. Hybrid of the famed European variety Imperial Epineuse and an unknown parent. Yellow-green skin with a pink to rose colored blush when sunlight is adequate. Hardy and a consistent cropper. Fruit of the highest quality when eaten fresh, not firm enough for the wholesale market. Ripens in late August. Tree is not self-fertile and is susceptible to the fungal diseases brown rot & black knot. Early mid bloom-time, pollinated by Reine Claude Conducta and Oullins. A royalty of $1.00 is added to the price of this tree.
