Pluots are a complex hybrid of plums and apricots, which gives them a savory blend of both flavors. Their skin is smooth like a plum, as they have a predominately plum parentage. They have a high sugar content, giving them a sweet and intense flavor.
Pluots are best eaten out-of-hand, but can be used for desserts like ice cream and yogurt toppings. They're uber-juicy and amazing in a summer fruit salad.
Natural plumcots/apriplums have been known for hundreds of years from regions of the world that grow both plums and apricots from seed. Pluots are later-generations that show more plum than apricot characteristics; the fruit's exterior has smooth skin closely resembling that of a plum.
A very high source of vitamins C, A and fiber.
Handling & Storage:
