Plummy Pluots

In recent years pluots have become readily available in many supermarkets. Have you tried them?

I had not until recently. On first look, it looked like a light colored, large plum. Cutting a pluot open, the pit looks like a plum pit. The flesh is the color of a plum. The taste is that of a sweet plum.

I am not sure why I did not snap a photo of the inside.  I guess I couldn’t wait to eat them all!

So, what is a pluot?  It is a cross between a plum and an apricot. The pluots I had were Sierra Honey variety, which is a proprietary variety of Kingsburg Orchard.  They have several varieties that are available throughout most of the year.

Sierra Honey is tasty and something different.  I am always looking for a new way to eat healthy foods.  Pluots fit the bill!

If you haven’t given then a try then I recommend that you do!
