flavor supremes start to show

pluots - specifically - flavor supreme is now being harvested in the back-forty.

an interspecific - engineered by zaiger.  no its not gmo.  this guy actually used mother natures way of cross pollination to get a plum/apricot

it is a green skinned, purple centered fruit.  very juicy, no tartness - but also not overly sweet.

balanced is an apt description.

 this is the first year we got these.  the tree has a good loading of them, so we should see more of these over the next few weeks.

  1. I have this variety grafted onto my Flavor Finale. GREAT STUFF! Got two of them this year. The others blew off in the wind. I'll get quadruple that amount next year.
