Ebony Rose Pluot is a hybrid of Prunus salicina, Prunus armeniaca and Prunus persica. Ebony Rose is registered with the U.S. Plant Patent No. 24055. The pluot 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.
