Mirabelle Plum

Mirabelle Plum (Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca) ©Stanislas PerrinThe mirabelle plum (Prunus domestica subsp. Syriaca) is a subspecies of the plum (Prunus domestica). It is cultivated in Central and Southern Europe and North Africa. Jam and mirabelle brandy are made from the delicious fruits, while in Georgia, the popular hot and sour sauce tkemali is made from the fruit. Its main growing area in Europe is undoubtedly France. There it is known as mirabelle de Loirraine, which reflect its main growing region. There 15,000 tons are harvested annually, equivalent to 80% of the world’s commercial production.
The wood is very similar to the plum: hard, dense, and outstanding to work with. As the growth of the trees ist not particularly large, the distinctively grained wood is available rather manageable dimensions, which can be used, for example, for the production of striking jewellery or home accessoires as well as for smaller furniture. The light brown colouring of the sapwood merges into an attractive dark brown core with violet shading.
