Geneva Mirabelle was developed in the 1950s, but is in essence very similar to the traditional French mirabelles such as Mirabelle de Nancy, and can be used for the same purposes such as "tarte aux mirabelles".

History

Geneva Mirabelle was developed by the New York State Agriculture Experment Station at Geneva, New York, in the 1950s.
