There have been rumors that not all greengages on the market are really 
greengages or worth the bother.  But I'd like to try one (or a mirabelle, 
something with serious flavor).  Does anyone know which ones from which 
catalogs really do have outstanding flavor for jams/processing?  I'm 
considering Bavay Gage though I'd prefer an earilier one.  But Raintree 
lists the genuine Reine Claude Doree.

Also on the subject of plums, is there a prune plum that's not dark 
purple?  The Stanley put me off purple prune plums, especially dried, the 
skins were so thick.
