The golden yellow flesh of mirabelles contains large amounts of pantothenic acid. This substance, also known as vitamin B5, is involved in cell metabolism, e.g. ensures shiny, luxuriant hair and is said to have anti-aging effects.

Don't let the green exterior fool you: Mirabelle plums are among the sweetest of the 2000 plum varieties known worldwide and have a particularly intense aroma.
