Bare Root Pluots, Plumcots, Pluerries, Etc.
Interspecific hybrids are an entirely new fruit type. They are complex hybrids of plums, apricots, cherries, peaches and nectarines. They will delight your taste buds with their rich, intense flavor. The plum/apricot crosses have a higher sugar content than either plums or apricots, without the tartness of some plums, which gives them an incredible sweetness. The different varieties all have flavors, aromas and textures that are sensationally distinctive and unique within the fruit world.
Pluots and plumcots have the same cultural requirements as plums; pruning, fertilizing, disease and insect control will be similar. Interspecifics are not recommended for areas that get extremely cold or that are subject to late frosts. If you live in such an area and want to try anyway, Flavor King, Flavor Grenade and Dapple Dandy Pluots are your best choices.
Recipes for pluots should be interchangeable with plums and possibly even apricots. We are including a recipe for a pluot tart below.
