A specialty fruit, which is a cross between a plum and an apricot with equal parts of plum and apricot parentage. It looks like a large apricot that is peach-red in color and has a flavor that combines the taste of the plum and apricot. As typically occurs with the crossing of two fruits, the plumcot has a higher sugar content than a plum or apricot, so it provides a much sweeter flavor. Availability of this fruit is limited. Similar species, known as "interspecifics" (a cross between two or more fruits) are also grown and referred to as Pluots and Apriums.
