Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca 'Geneva Mirabelle'


This small yellow plum blushed with garnet and speckled with ruby stars is an American cousin to the famous French queen of plums! Incredibly productive and full of sugary flavor, this freestone fruit is filled with rich, fragrant, luscious, golden meat. Great for tarts, compotes, canning or making wine. Formerly known as Mirabelle 858; from Cornell University in Geneva, N.Y.


The tree habit is upright and spreading. Regularly and vigorously productive. Tends to be a shy pollen producer.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Can European plums pollinate Asian plumbs?

    No, their flowers aren't open at the same time. Otherwise they could.

  • Is the Geneva plum available for shipping now? Mine purchased from you died suddenly for now apparent reason. Don't expect you to replace it except by me buying

    Bareroot trees are not available all year long. They are grown to a specific point of maturity (usually 3 years), dug from the field, and stored for no longer than 6 months in a cold storage facility for shipping. Outside of that period the trees are too young or no longer viable. Additionally trees cannot be shipped during hot months of the year, so even if one was dug now and shipped it would likely die during transit. Shipping for fruit trees will resume early spring of 2023.

“Compote what?”

EXACTLY the same experience as the last guy. Down to the part about wife making me get a Mirabelle de Nancy and another Geneva.

I don’t get this compote/brandy stuff. More like “often used for gobbling up by the handful.”

Wasn’t real quick to come into production, but then, I live in a marginal climate.

Spraying with tiny amounts of Monopotassium Phosphate (only three grams per liter per week during growth season really seemed to make this thing flower.

Good c.f.s.Z.
Pretty Good

Slightly larger than a cherry. But much better. Supposedly they use this for pastry filling in yerp.

My own crop has trouble making it to the back door. Attractive, dense, spreading tree.

My wife made me get another once she tasted the fruit and also a Mirabelle de Nancy.
