Find this plum at Wegmans(an east coast grocery store), the store label it as green plum(? I am certain about the green, not sure about the plum part, whether it’s plum or Pluot or plucot)
But, there is nothing green about this plum at all. It’s yellow, has a touch of red at the bottom.
This particular fruit weights about 3.5 oz. It’s sweet and delicious. Wegmans sells it for 2.99/lb. It taste like a plum to me, but I never had a plumcot before, so…
@mamuang, I ate the last one after I took the pictures😟 It did occur to me as I was taking the last bite that maybe I should take a picture of the flesh, but it was too late.
I will go to wegmans and see if they still have them. I think the flesh is yellow.
I am not very sophiscated about plum, all I can say is that it tastes better than all the other purple / red plum I had before. I like the texture too. This fruit is more than “mildly sweet” to me, but I don’t have a sweet tooth.
@Drew51, I googled “Vermont”, doesn’t look like it. The blush of red is at the pointy bottom, just a little red(maybe because it’s not ripe enough). It’s wider than it’s tall.
I didn’t think it was. I was just pointing out that most of us don’t like the pure yellow plums, some do like ones like Vermont, which are not pure yellow. . But if you do that’s great! It has a strange shape, bet it’s a pluot.
My family really likes Flavor Queen firm ripe. Its one of the top 10 pluots in my opinion, right behind Emerald Drop. Probably worth buying more! Also keep an eye out for future pluots from them, the large purple ones they may have soon are Flavor King, those are to die for!
I believe they have a full time person just testing new stone fruit varieties. The last time I saw the guy speak he said Family Tree Farms was testing varieties from 24 breeding programs from around the world. So yes they are testing things we have no hope of ever seeing except in the store.
Firm ripe is the way we like them, At this stage there is some acid in the skin that makes them much better. They are just sweet with little flavor when fully ripe. We also prefer Emerald Drop firm ripe which are better than FQ in my opinion.
