A hybrid stone fruit that is a cross between a plum and an apricot. The fruit is predominantly a plum, being 3/4's plum and 1/4 apricot with a smooth red to black outer skin that covers a bright orange juicy flesh. The flavor is a sweet combination of a plum with a mild apricot taste. For serving, the fruit can be eaten out of hand, in salads, in sauces, added to breads, in desserts, or as a sweetener for other foods. Similar varieties are the Aprium and the Plumcot. The Pluot and Aprium names are registered trademarks of Zaiger Genetics of Modesto, California, the company who developed this complex hybrid, which is referred to as an "interspecific," a mix of two or more species of fruit.
