Goje Sabz in English is Greengage. It is the Prunus Domestica ssp. italica – gages (Greengages fruit).  The texture is crunchy, juicy and few are a bit of tangy.  I heard it is good to eat with some bit of salt.  USDA Zones:6-9.  Small white flowers in summer attract bees and butterflies.  Mature size: 12′-15′(H) x 1′(W).  Propagate by grafting though some said can be propagated by seeds.

歐洲李綠果小脆而多汁,但香味很淡,不算甜,不過不會酸澀.  聽說吃時加點鹽不錯. 我吃了覺得有加鹽沒有比較好吃.  雖然甜度和香度不足,但口感比亞洲李好吃.   成熟株高約12-15呎,寬幅僅1呎. 夏開白色小花,須疏果.  繁殖以嫁接為主,不過也有聽過可用種子來繁殖的.
