Standard on Myrobalan 29 rootstock.

Zones: 5-11

Chill hours: 400

Harvest: July 10 - July 25

Looks: Small to medium sized, round to heart shaped, yellow fruit with a red and orange blush. Attractive orange flesh.

Personality: Tastes like the best Thompson seedless grape youve ever had.

Facts of note: Dave Wilson's Taste Test Top Scorer. Beautiful upright tree looks like hung with Christmas lights with fruit hanging.

Pollination: Pollinated by any other pluot or Japanese plum.

The Pluot is "Interspecific" meaning it is a complex hybrid of 70 percent plum, 30 percent apricot with decidedly more plum-like traits. Smooth-skinned like a plum, the Pluot is sturdy and durable with luscious flavor. It has the chin-dripping juiciness of a fully ripe plum without the notoriously tough skin and tart center typical of the parent plum. One of the sweetest fruits, with 16-24 Brix probably explains why Pluots dominate the Dave Wilson Taste Tests. The fruit is very high in Vitamin A. Pluots were bred by Zaiger Genetics Inc. of Modesto California.



On Myrobalan 29 Rootstock known for a shallow but vigorous root system. Tolerates wet soils. Immune to root-knot nematodes, some resistance to oak-root fungus. Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 4th or 5th year.



Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Almond, Mulberry, Walnut, Persimmon, and Jujube -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
