Gascoigne's Heart (Bleeding Heart; Herefordshire Heart; Red Heart).—Above medium size, heart-shaped, broad at the stalk, and terminating at the apex in an acute, swollen point. Skin entirely covered with bright red. Stalk two inches long, slender. Flesh yellowish white, half-tender, juicy, and sweet. Beginning and middle of July.
German May Duke. See Early Purple Gean.
Gobet a Courte Queue. See Gros Gobet.
Governor Wood.—Large, obtuse heart-shaped. Skin pale yellow, washed and mottled with bright red. Stalk an inch and a half long. Flesh half-tender, juicy, sweet, and very richly flavoured. Beginning of July.
Graffion. See Bigarreau.
Great Cornelian (Double Glass).—Very large, oblate, marked on one side with a very deep suture, which quite divides the fruit. Skin thin and translucent, at first of a light red, but becoming darker as it ripens. Stalk an inch and a half long. Flesh yellowish, tender, very juicy, with a fine sub-acid, vinous, and rich flavour. Beginning of July.
Griotte de Kleparow (Belle Polonaise).—Medium sized, roundish-oblate. Skin dark red. Stalk two inches long. Flesh dark, tender, and juicy, with a rich, sweet, and sub-acid flavour. End of July.
Griotte de Portugal.—This is by some considered synonymous with the Archduke. It certainly bears a considerable resemblance to it in the size, form, and colour, of the fruit; but I have not yet had an opportunity of comparing trees of equal age, and growing under the same circumstances. I am, however, inclined to believe that they will prove to be, if not really identical, at least very similar.
Gros Caeuret. See Monstrous Heart.
Gros Gobet (Montmorency; Montmorency a Courte Queue).—Medium sized, oblate, marked on one side with a very deep suture, which forms quite a cleft at the stalk. Skin smooth and shining, of a fine clear red, but becoming darker as it ripens. Stalk very short and thick, half an inch to an inch long. Flesh white, tender, very juicy, and briskly acid; but when it hangs long it is agreeably flavoured. Middle and end of July. This has been, very incorrectly, made synonymous with the Flemish, and even with the Kentish.
Grosse de Wagnelee. See Reine Hortense.
Guigne Noire Tardive. See Tradescant's Heart.
