Oh, So Dandy: Dapple Dandy Pluots

The pluot comes from a cross between a plum and an apricot (thus the name: PLUm+apricOT). The Dapple Dandy pluot was found in this week’s box, and it features a mottled pink-and-green skin that gives it the nickname “Dinosaur Egg.” The inside is beautiful, with intense pink flesh close to the skin, fading to palest pink near the pit. Its sweetness is balanced by a little tartness, and biting into one is satisfyingly crisp yet tender. The pluot is a strange little fruit with an unbeatable flavor.

  • May I use this luscious photo of pluots in my graphic design? I’m working on designing an article about produce. Sorry, I have no budget but would be happy to credit you! (Could you let me know by May 10, 2012?) Thank you so much for considering this!
