I'm striking out on web searches...live in So. Cal., and would like to find/plant mirabelle plums. Have read they need a pollinizer, but what kind? Anyone know the growing requirements, ultimate height, anything that would be useful? TIA.

      thanks--neither of those links came up in my search, altho' I did previously see the Raintree site--however, found some broken links there. I'm concerned about the required chill hours, especially since I'm in So. Cal.

      Appreciate your help!

      While several places note the Mirabelle's use in making brandy, I'm specifically interested in making jam. If anyone has any info. on that, please let me know!
