The Greengage is a somewhat smaller plant, with fruit 1 1/2 inches in diameter and two seed chambers to a berry, and is lemon yellow in color. In fruit that is true to type, the jelly mass in slightly under ripe fruit is green. This turns yellow when the fruit it ripe. The flavor of this tomato is the best of this small type.

The Greengage Tomato Vilmorin garden book (1885, 571) described this Victorian tomato under the name tomate jaune ronde and equated it with several other varieties (red, pink, purple) in terms of size and overall shape. The fruit is supposed to be perfectly round like a Ping-Pong ball and 2 inches in diameter. It hangs in clusters of 6 to a stem. The variety was mentioned as early as 1867 under the name Yellow Plum, and at that time was sold almost exclusively in England because it was excellent for growing in tubs.
