About the Fruit
The Mirabelle varietal is a specialty of the French region of Lorraine, which has an ideal climate and soil composition for the cultivation of this fruit; it known as the perfect jamming plum, as it is sweet and tiny, and often baked into pies and cakes.
Andy of Andy’s Orchards, who also grows Reine Claudes, grows a minuscule number of Mirabelles (de Nancy), and they make a gorgeous jam. In France, 70% of commercial production goes to make a rich plum jam, but here in the states it's impossible to find….except right here!
