Features mirabelle tree

  1. The Mirabelle has an oval shape, or an egg shape. It is usually yellow, but it can also be blue or dark purple, just like the common plum, of which the mirabelle is very similar and is related to. A mirabelle tree grows three to six meters high. It grows most in Central and Southern Europe and North Africa, but can also grow in the Netherlands and Belgium and get a lot of fruit. In warmer regions the mirabelle leaves its leaves, but during colder winters such as in the Netherlands the leaves fall to the ground.

Naming mirabelle

  1. The Latin scientific name of mirabelle is Prunus domestica subsp. syriaca. The word mirabelle comes from the Greek word murobalanon. Prunus is plum and domesticana means 'cultivated'. Prunus domesticama is the general term for plum varieties. Syriaca means 'from Syria'. In English-speaking countries, the mirabelle is often referred to as Syrian plum, or Syrian plum. Sometimes the English say Syrian Christ plum. The duckweed plum is very closely related to the mirabelle, but it is not exactly the same tree. There are many different types of mirabelle plums. The most famous come from the Lorraine or in Dutch: Lorraine or Loreinen. The Mirabelle is a popular fruit to make a cake in France.

The Plum or Mirabelle

  1. Mirabel is a delicious fruit. Mirabel can be eaten raw or cooked. Some varieties are slightly more acidic; these are generally used for cooking with sugar. A jam, sugar syrup or compote can be made from the mirabelle. The flowers of the mirabelle tree can also be eaten. The seeds can also be eaten but it is wise not to take more than a few because of the amygdaline content in them.

Mirabelle flowers

It is also possible to make a tea from the mirabelle flowers; comparable to a lime blossom tea. For this purpose it is good to prepare fresh mirabelle blossoms as a tea as well as to dry it. Those who keep mirabelle blossoms as a tea can also drink it in winter.

Good for digestion

  1. Dried Mirabelle fruit is a laxative. In addition, it is a stomach strengthening agent. Digestion is improved by eating prunes. A fresh plum also has this effect to a slightly lesser extent. The Mirabelle is no exception to other plums; almost all plums are known for their laxative effect. This is partly due to their fiber content. Fiber has a positive effect on digestion and intestinal transit.

Fever and respiratory improvement

  1. The mirabelle bark is a fever repellent. That's because it contains a minimal amount of amygdalin. This substance is poisonous in large quantities. Amygdalin is mainly found in the leaves and the stone of the fruit. In a small amount it is in the bark or bark. A tea can be made from this. It is wise to use just a little bit. Amygdalin in minute amounts can provide a feeling of well-being. In addition, this tea stimulates breathing with a minimal amount of amygdalin. Digestion as a whole is also improved by a tiny presence of amygdalin.
