Dapple Dandy pluots have the initial appearance of a mottled plum. Their colorings range from red-skinned and pale amber-skinned to ruby-fleshed and blazing gold fleshed. The skin is taut and thin, clinging tightly to the fruit's flesh. Their skin breaths and excretes a film or coating that sits as a residue on the fruit. Most pluot varieties are extremely sweet, often spicy, low-acid fruits with a juicy, chin-dripping tender firm flesh, qualities that the fruit was developed to achieve. When multiple variates of pluots are planted in the same orchard scattered pollination between trees will occur, often times this imparts an enriched flavor to the fruits.
Dapple Dandy pluots are available from spring into fall.
Pluots is the registered trademark name given to a stonefruit that was developed by Floyd Zaiger of Zaiger Genetics in 1989. Zaiger developed the original pluot from plum and apricot lineage. Zaiger develops all of his hybrid fruits by hand pollination versus genetic modification. The attention and care taken to create a pluot from parent varieties is painstakingly precise. Floyd Zaiger created the original pluots under extreme temperature control, transferring pollen from one fruit to the next with a tweezers. There are dozens of pluot cultivars that range in sugar content, color and rate of maturity. Common marketing name
