Greengage's vs. green plums

Now that the frest fruit season is rapidly apprach I was wondering if anyone out there could define exactly what is a greengage. Is it only the little ittby bitty green plum, which i only tend to see at farmes markets and gourmet stores with the sour skin or can any green fleshed plum legally be called a greengage (as some stores seem to be doing)? Trying to make sure that I know which plum im getting is beginning to give me a headache, and has actually stopped me from trying to order trees for my home as i now have no idea if what i'm going to get it what I want (I know of at least one compay that is selling plum trees labeled greengages which have red fruit!)
