The King of Sweetness

Pluots are one of the great taste sensations in all the world, and Flavor King Pluot is the supreme ruler of the pluots. A cross between a juicy Japanese plum and a soft, sweet apricot, the Flavor King will exceed your expectations for a pluot.

These fruits look like plums, with their dark wine-red skin and firm yellow flesh. But one bite and you know you aren’t eating a plum. The juicy flesh is sweeter and less tart than a plum. 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 King incomparably sweet.

The tree itself has a classic shape and beautiful Japanese plum-like leaves. Even if it never fruited it would be a nice tree in your landscape. But thankfully, this tree WILL fruit…and each year that passes the harvest gets bigger. You’ll have plenty to eat and an abundance to share with your friends and neighbors.

Flavor King needs a pollinator so plant two, or plant with a Japanese plum like Beauty Plum.

Order a couple of these beauties today and enjoy this amazingly sweet fruit next year. You’ll be glad you did! Hail to the King!
