Note that "Mirabelle" is a class of plums rather than a cultivar, and 
normally it is qualified as in "Mirabelle de Nancy" etc.

They suffer from the same carelessness of nomenclature in North America 
as "Damson."

Perhaps one might describe them as "Prunus insititia for fresh eating" 
although I have the impression from reading that they are often also 
well regarded for cooking; tarts etc.
