Color Crazy – Red Mirabelle plums

We call them “corcoduse”. Google translates to me that they are Mirabelle plums.They are found in several colors: red, yellow or dark red. They are small round and very sweet when ripe. I took the picture a few days ago when I visited my native village. I was impressed by all the fruit-filled trees in my mother’s garden. It’s been 12 years since my mother died but the trees in her garden still resist.

I remember my mother used to make “Tuica” of these fruits. Tuica is a traditional Romanian spirit.

I’m sharing this photo with Color Crazy Challenge – RED this week. You may say that there is a lot of green in the photo but … the subject of the photo is red!

  1. Import of mirabelles to the United States is restricted as the fruit has a protected origin designation. Mirabelles can only be imported into the US from Lorraine, France, making true Mirabelle Plums almost impossible to get in the US.
