Mirabelle de Nancy European Plum
Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca 'Mirabelle de Nancy'
This variety is a hit in farmers markets throughout France; eaten fresh, crafted into preserves, or made into wine or brandy. It is as good today as it was in 1790! Mirabelle de Nancy is named for a city in the Alsace Lorraine region of Northeastern France. The freestone fruit is more oval in shape and slightly larger and firmer than other Mirabelles.
A more upright grower than some other Mirabelles, it is considered somewhat self fertile in some areas, but considerably increases its yield with a polllinizing partner. Not considered a good pollinizer for other European plums due to shy pollen production. Considered very low chill for a European plum - under 300 hours.
