A new hybrid of 75% plum and 25% apricot, this deeply red Plumogranate Plumcot is truly nature’s candy.  Let’s call it a Skittles plum, because that’s how sweet it is!

It tastes mostly like a plum with a hint of pom, thus the name. And, my friends, the deep red juice that runs down your arm will stain like pomegranate. (You have been warned about the staining part, which is actually worth it once you try the fruit. Just don’t wear a white shirt, OK?)

I won.

Get them now, while they are in season. They’re about $3 a pound (sometimes just labeled plumcot in the store), and grown in California.

You’ll cry when they’re gone.

A sample of this fruit was sent by the produce experts at Melissa’s Produce.

Where can I get some of this fruit? Is there an orchard or fruit seller who will ship them?

You can call Melissa’s Produce toll-free at 800 588-0151. They should be able to tell you if they have any to sell you directly, or which stores in your area are stocking them!

Wow, these sound amazing! Hopefully I will see some the next time I go out. Where can you typically find these? Would they be in a Safeway or something like Trader Joes?

Yep, regular grocery stores! Sometimes they are simply labeled plumcots, if the produce staff isn’t vigilant or particular.

Saw these advertised yesterday on a Gelson’s FB post…they look and sound amazing!
