Mirabelle Gypsy is a small, bright yellow, dual purpose cherry plum with a sweet flavour. Great for baking and preserving, makes fine jam and can be distilled into fine spirit.
Once popular all across Europe, the Mirabelle has come out of fashion in most places. The region of the french Loire Valley rediscovered the Mirabelle and now grooms and markets them as a regional speciality.
Ready in September.
Self-fertile. Pollinates group 3.
