I have some truly ancient greengage trees that often produce huge crops.
They are riddled with a fungus that kills them but even cutting them to
stumps still results in new healthy shoots that go on to bear moire
fruits...

They were here when I bought the place 30 years ago, as was also a
mirabelle tree - or some sort of wild looking small green plum. Those
fruits were sweet but lacking in flesh.

Anyway that's just keeled over - exposing rotted and snapped roots. And
its going to take its last bow as winter firewood for 2012/2022 but,
have I lost the tree that pollinated my other gages?

Otherwise I'll probably plant a Czar plum there instead...

I seem to recall it neither flowers nor fruits at the same time as the
gages.

Bob MANY thanks. That settles it. A Czar it is. It looks like that will
cross pollinate nicely

Of what good are dead warriors? … Warriors are those who desire battle
more than peace. Those who seek battle despite peace. Those who thump
their spears on the ground and talk of honor. Those who leap high the
battle dance and dream of glory … The good of dead warriors, Mother, is
that they are dead.
