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.

Mira elle metz plum tree

The tree arrived on good condition,there is not much to report at this time since the tree is still dormant.

It was great, very happy with the purchase

Roy L.W.
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.

Not sure that they have any customer service except to take your payment.

Worst Company with whom I have ever done business. I purchased 2 Mirabelle Plum trees. One did well and other never showed any signs of growth so they had me send photos and to do a scratch test. The first test on the trunk showed some life but 2 months later, it showed none. I have contacted them 5 times now by phone & email, sending more photos and the last scratch test. They have not responded to any in the past 3 weeks. I have never spoken with a person as they never answer the phone but tell you to leave messages which they never respond to. So far, no response by email either. I would like my $59 + tax + shipping or a replacement tree so that my other will pollinate but In 3 wks have yet to have a response.
