I Love Pluots

Dapple Dandy Pluot

Pluots.  Yum.  Part plum, part apricot.  Sweet and juicy.  I’m not sure when they hit our grocery store but I noticed them a few weeks ago and have been buying them by the sackful.  They really make a great treat.  When I need that sweet tooth satisfied I have been reaching for the pluots lately instead of the chocolate.

According to the Wikipedia entry the Pluot is actually 3/4 plum and 1/4 apricot.  The photo here shows a Dapple Dandy Pluot but I have actually been eating mostly Flavor King brand Pluots.  Highly recommended!

Wow, I’ve never heard of a Pluot…I’m definitely going to try to find these. It sounds yummy and different, which is always exciting :) Oh, and totally better than the chocolate indeed!

Being different and new is exactly why I tried them the first time. I also tried an Asian Pear at the same time but I’m afraid the experience was not so good.
