Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca 'Mirabelle de Metz'

A member of the Royal Court of Plums! Soft, sweet, exquisitely-flavored Mirabelle de Metz plums are small-stoned, freestone, and yellow dotted with carmine red. This very old, French cultivar of the wonderful Mirabelle ripens in late summer and produces heavily each year. The intensely sweet and fragrant fruits require very little added sugar to create luscious preserves and baked goods.

While Mirabelles tend to be shy pollen producers, this variety will need a pollinizing partner. Upright and blazingly productive most years.

Ask a Question
  • Will this plum do well with an Italian Plum as a pollinator?

    No, they do not bloom at the same time. Gage plums are the best for Mirabelle plums.

  • What pollinizing partner do you recommend getting with the Mirabelle de Metz?

    Another European plum, like a Gage plum. Coe's Golden Drop, Monsieur Hatif, and Victoria are also suggested.

New Mirabelles at New Hampshire

Metz and Nancy arrived in good condition, well-packaged. Good root and branch structure, completely dormant. Gave them nice wide holes, sunny spot, backfilled adding plenty of humus. I'm looking forward to seeing them grow, here in Seacoast NH, Zone 6a.

It was great, very happy with the purchase

Very strong tree with good platform

The M. de Metz seems less common in U.S. than other Mirabelles and is recommended for cooking, much like a prune type. Followed Raintree advice and planted the tree near other plums for pollination.

They made a mistake, and they fixed it

Raintree Nursery made a mistake, then owned up to it, and fixed it as best they could. They had shipped me two fruit trees that, four years later when the trees started bearing fruit, I learned were (similar but) the wrong trees. To their credit, Raintree recognized the problem, and fixed it as best they could by shipping me two trees that they double promise are the right ones.
