Unique Fruit with an Unbeatable Flavor The Dapple Dandy Pluot® (Prunus Pluot) is also called Dinosaur Egg. The fruit is a cross between a plum and an apricot hence the name, PLUm + apricOT = Pluot.  The Dapple Dandy is a large freestone fruit. Typically a mix of 75% plum and 25% apricot it exhibits more plum characteristics. The fruit’s exterior has smooth, shiny skin closely resembling that of a plum. It is greenish-yellow with red spots, then transforms to a maroon and yellow dapple as it ripens. It’s the mottled colors of the skin that earned the Dapple Dandy the nickname Dinosaur Egg. The juicy, firm flesh of the fruit is surprisingly beautiful. It’s an intense red-pink close to the skin, fading to a pale pink near the pit. You are sure to be intrigued by the plum-apricot flavor. It is incredibly sweet with a slightly tart finish that balances it perfectly. Much like a blend of fruit juices where the mixture is an improvement over any of the separate ingredients. Its texture is crisp and firm yet tender. A frequent taste test winner for its distinct Plum-Apricot flavor, the Pluot is a unique fruit with an unbeatable flavor.  It is a moderately late ripening tree that can be pollinated by the Santa Rosa Plum. * Cold hardy* Unique fruit* Disease and pest resistant Recommended pollinators: Flavor King or Santa Rosa Plum  .

The King of Sweetness Pluots are one of the great taste sensations in all the world, and Flavor King Pluot is the supreme ruler of the pluots. A cross between a juicy Japanese plum and a soft, sweet apricot, the Flavor King will exceed your expectations for a pluot. These fruits look like plums, with their dark wine-red skin and firm yellow flesh. But one bite and you know you aren’t eating a plum. The juicy flesh is sweeter and less tart than a plum. Because these fruits are a marriage of a plum and an apricot, the sugar content of both is magnified in the pluot. This makes Flavor King incomparably sweet. The tree itself has a classic shape and beautiful Japanese plum-like leaves. Even if it never fruited it would be a nice tree in your landscape. But thankfully, this tree WILL fruit…and each year that passes the harvest gets bigger. You’ll have plenty to eat and an abundance to share with your friends and neighbors. Flavor King needs a pollinator so plant two, or plant with a Japanese plum like Beauty Plum. Order a couple of these beauties today and enjoy this amazingly sweet fruit next year. You’ll be glad you did! Hail to the King! * Adaptable to a variety of soils* Super-sweet taste* Firm, juicy flesh Recommended pollinators: Dapple Dandy, Santa Rosa Plum, Methley Plum  .
