Dapple Dandy Pluot® Super Sweet Taste

  • Cold Hardy
  • Unique Fruit
  • Disease and Pest Resistant

Also known as “Dinosaur’s Fruit” or “Dinosaur Egg,” the Dapple Dandy Pluot® Tree (Prunus Pluot) is a sweet cross between an apricot and a plum, hence its name, a combination of the words “plum” and “apricot.” This delectable and somewhat exotic large freestone fruit is essentially a mix of three-fourths plum and one-fourth apricot, with all the sweet juiciness one might expect from such a delightful combination.

A fun and tasty option for all fruit lovers, the Dapple Dandy Pluot is an ideal variety to plant for kids in the family, your own or someone else’s. Kids love watching the fruit develop, and the sweet taste helps them expand their evolving palates.

The fruit’s exterior is covered in a smooth, shiny skin closely resembling that of a plum. Its greenish-yellow red-spotted exterior develops into a maroon and yellow dapple as it begins to ripen. It is the fruit’s spotted appearance and mottled skin coloring that won it the moniker of “Dinosaur Egg.”

The flesh of the Dapple Dandy Pluot is juicy, firm and unexpectedly lovely with an intense reddish pink hue that fades to a pale pink near its solitary pit.

The taste is amazingly sweet with a slight tart finish for the right balance in the mouth. One might think of the fruit’s taste in much the same way as a fruit juice blend where the combination of flavors is more pleasing than the juice of a single fruit. The texture is crisp and firm, yet tender.

A regular taste test champion for its distinct plum-apricot flavor, the Pluot is a unique fruit with an unbeatable taste. It is a moderately late ripening tree that can be pollinated by the Santa Rosa Plum.
