The King of Sweetness

  • Adaptable to a Variety of Soils
  • Super-Sweet Taste
  • Firm, Juicy Flesh

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

Pluots 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.

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. It's a great way to get Vitamin C, Vitamin A, potassium and even fiber. Kids will never, ever know that these are "good for them"!

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.

Order today, and Hail to the King!

Recommended pollinators: Dapple Dandy, Santa Rosa Plum, Methley Plum
