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's 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!
