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.
The identification paintings in the USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection span the years 1886 to 1942.
