If you’re putting in a thumb and think you’re pulling out a plum from our fruit baskets, you had better check the label. Pluots are in season masquerading as plums!
Pluots are the product of cross-breeding apricots and plums (like apriums). 70 percent plum and 30 percent apricot, ours look exactly like plums but are juicier and are sweet rather than tart. Rich in vitamin A and with a high sugar content, pluots are a great way to sweeten yogurt in the morning without additional sugar. They cut up well and can be used in summer fruit salads or simply eaten on their own!
