Flavor Grenade Pluot Tree

Availability: Out of stock

Ever eaten a Pluot? If you haven't, you've missed one of the great taste sensations in all of fruitdom. Try this to get your mouth watering - imagine biting into a juicy Japanese Plum fresh from the tree. Now imagine biting into a soft, sweet apricot at the same time. Let those tastes mix in your imagination for a moment. Now hit the order button, because that amazing taste is a reality when you plant a Flavor Grenade Pluot (Prunus domestica x prunus armeniaca 'Flavor Grenade').

Like a delicious mixed juice, these little flavor bombs explode with sweetness with your first bite. Beautiful red-blushed fruit is crisp and firm on the inside. They are super-juicy and will hang ripe on the tree for over a month.

Flavor Grenade Pluots Because these fruits are a marriage of a Plum and an Apricot, the sugar content of both is magnified in the Pluot. This makes Flavor Grenade incomparably sweet and uniquely delightful! Flavor Grenade needs a pollinator so plant it with the Splash Pluot tree, or plant with a Japanese Plum like the Beauty Plum.

Planting and Application:

The clouds of white blossoms will call tons of pollinators to your garden and make this a delightful tree to have in your front yard landscaping! Especially when it is dripping in those gorgeous fruits! These columnar trees can reach a hefty 15-20 feet in height when not pruned, but only take up a scant 1-2 feet in width! Prune shorter yet for container and planter gardening!

Flavor Grenade Pluot Trees readily tuck into any existing landscape or established orchard with ease! Its counterpart interspecific Pluot the Splash, also easily tucks into any space, making it ideal for edible gardening and small space landscaping!
