Pluot Tree 'Flavor Candy'
£38.50Pluot Tree 'Flavor Candy'This unusual fruit is a complex cross between a plum and an apricot. The large peach-sized fruits are smooth skinned and very juicy (like a plum) and have a unique flavour, much like a blend of fruit juices. They are deliciously flavoured, yielding fruit of incomparable sweetness. This variety produces heavy crops of red flushed fruits with yellow flesh and combines the juiciness of a plum with the fragrant taste of an apricot. Pluots flower early and therefore require similar growing conditions to apricots - a warm, sheltered site in full sun. They can be trained as a fan or grown as free standing trees.Buy Now
