Whatever happened to Greengages?

My mum used to get these when I was a kid - yet most of us only remembered them after looking at the picture here.

The were like plums only tasted nicer, were about the same width but shorter, and I have not seen them in years.

Still pretty widely available in season (around August) - Tesco, ASDA and Waitrose all had them in the summer. It's a variety of plum, but with a much richer flavour if you get the right variety.
