Mirabelle de Nancy mirabelle

Mirabelle de Nancy is perhaps the definitive mirabelle variety.  Commercial production centres on Lorraine in north eastern France, between the cities of Metz and Nancy.  The small round yellow fruits can be eaten fresh when fully ripe but are primarily grown for use in baking, jams, and plum brandy.
