Mirabelle de Metz European Plum
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.
