Growing Calendar for Plum Tree - Mirabelle de Nancy x1
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Sweet yellow plums that crop prolifically. Prune fruited stems after harvests to maintain a healthy and attractive tree. They are greatly prized for their superb flavour, they are delicious eaten directly from the tree or used in cooking.
The fruits are incredibly sweet and also tangy, they have a slight taste of honey. They are excellent when used in a plum pie or a classic French tart and make fantastic jam. The stone detaches very easily from the fruit which is very handy when you use them for cooking.
The beautiful blossoms of the tree have very good frost resistance. Our fruit trees are expertly trained so they have strong main branches, ready to fruit heavily once planted and well-established. Our varieties are specially grafted onto roots that keep trees smaller for easier harvests, while maintaining impressive yields.
This popular and tasty variety is self-fertile (SF) so it flowers and fruits independently. They produce fruit, even when planted in isolation.
