What On Earth Is A Pluot?

August 10, 2012

Pluots, also called “Dinosaur eggs”

This weekend’s co-op style produce shares will include a uniquely wonderful fruit called a PluotWhat on earth is that?

A Pluot is a plum + apricot hybrid that’s available throughout the summer.   You should leave them on the countertop to ripen, and then once they’re ripe, eat them or store them in the fridge.

Kids love ’em!  Kids sometimes call them “dinosaur eggs” because they’re egg-shaped with a pinkish red mottled appearance. Try serving pluot chunks as an after-school snack, or with yogurt or ice cream.

You can also try these recipes with your pluots…

Let us know how you like them!
