A hybrid fruit invented by a man named Floyd Zaiger in the late 20th century, the pluot is a combination of the well-known and more oftenly eaten plums and apricots. Also referred to as dinosaur eggs, these little fruits are smooth on the outside and sweet on the inside! But never fear! - The pluot is not a GMO! It is a hybridized fruit, meaning it is created after two blossoms cross pollinate, which can happen both naturally and in a controlled state. They're rich in nutrients and vitamins with few calories, helping control your appetite and maintain your weight.
Select firm, smooth fruit with a sweet fragrance. The flesh surrounding the stem should give way just a bit when pressed gently. Avoid bruised fruit. Pluots can be stored loosely in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
