The Blue Velvet is actually an Aprium, which is a cross between a plum and apricot. While the fruit looks like a dark plum, the skin retains its apricot fuzzy exterior, bright orange interior and apricot flavor.

The skin of this fruit does not have the usual plum tang aftertaste and this variety is extremely sweet. Blue Velvets make excellent marmalade, pie filling or a delicious sauce for chicken or pork.

Choose fruit with no bruises or soft spots. May be ripened in a paper bag at room temperature; store ripe fruit in the refrigerator for up to four days.
