How are Mirabelles and Green Gages on the East Coast (Phila, PA)
I was thinking about growing some Green Gages and Mirabelles after reading their descriptions. I was curious if any would do well in area like Philadelphia with humid summers.
I did see some good Green Gage chit-chat here:
Could 1 Green Gage and a 1 Mirabelle pollinate each other?
I saw advice on RainTree to just buy another Green Gage variety. Their chart didn't list any pollinators for
the 'Reine Claude Doree' real/original green gage Plum.
If they don't do well here, what other varieties would you recommend for around here. I think scottfsmith said Shiro/Satsuma did really well for him in his plum report, but Rosy Gage was prone to rot (and Coe's Golden Drop was his only less rot-prone Euro plum?).
