Description of Mirabelle de Nancy Trees & Fruit:
This truly dual purpose tree is tangy-sweet when eaten fresh and tart enough to cook really well in a pie or classic French tarte. It also makes a superb jam. The fruit are quite small and the stone in the centre is very loosely attached, which is handy when you are preparing lots of them for cooking. They will conveniently develop a bit of a pink blush on their golden skin when they are ripe.
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good.
The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
