Product Information

'Mirabelle de Nancy' is a cherry plum  a distinct plum fruit, and not a hybrid of cherry and plum. It produces masses of golden fruits, with gorgeous yellow flesh, and a sweet, very juicy distinctive peach-like taste and small stone.

It tastes good eaten straight from the tree but is also fabulous for cooking with just perfect for making plum cake and fruit crumbles!

Popular in France, 'Mirabelle' makes a great addition to the fruit garden. They flower early and can be prone to early frosts, so plant in a sheltered, sunny spot if possible. The silver lining is that they fruit early too, from high summer into September.

Grown on 'Pixy' rootstock, 'Mirabelle' retains a more upright habit, making it an ideal plum tree for smaller gardens. It will top out at 9-10ft within10 years, which makes for easy picking. It is self-fertile, too. Try one!

Once tasted, Mirabelle plums are never forgotten.

Supplied as an established plant approx. 90-110cm tall tree in a 5L pot, ready to plant out.

Care Information

  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture.
  • For the biggest, juiciest plums, thin the fruits in May by removing some of the smaller, immature fruits. Then in July, while the plums are still hard, remove any that are damaged or diseased or touching others.
  • Water regularly, and don't let the soil dry out if planted in pots.
  • Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen.
  • Avoid leaving windfalls or over-ripe fruit on the ground.
  • Prune trees in late in July when they're in full growth.
  • For young trees, take back the new upright growth by about a third. For older, mature trees, remove any dead, diseased or dying branches and then prune the older branches hard to promote productivity, aiming for an overall goblet shape.
