While at the Mart of Wal yesterday, they had some Plumcots in the produce section, so I had to pick up a box of them. These actually were named this time, called Dapple Dandy, from the same place the apriums I tried last month, Family Tree Farms.
For some reason, they have the texture (or feel) of a tomato, and sized about two inches in diameter. Skin has a pale red color to it with some yellow. When cut into, they are a darker red, very attractive. Very juicy, but held its shape when cut.
The taste is more of apricot than plum, that is, pretty tangy, but sweet as well. It has that musty plum taste in there also, but not as prominent. I think this is the best flavored of all these plum-apricot hybrids I’ve tried. I really like the one I had, my wife didn’t want to try one but will soon.
If 'cots weren’t so hard to grow here, I might consider trying one of these trees. But, I prob need to stop buying trees…
