Andrey Ivanov is demonstrating once again what a great job he and his team are doing growing fruit at the famous Wilkin & Sons in Tiptree, Essex and this time, it’s the greengage.

An under-ripe greengage has the same tartness as rhubarb or gooseberry, but find one that is perfectly ripe, and you’ll be rewarded with a sweet and succulent flavour.
