Plumcots are a hybrid of a plum and an apricot. They mainly retain the characteristics and flavor of a plum. Their skin is a light reddish-yellow in color with small speckles.

Every year they become more and more available in stores across the U.S. as demand and production rises.

This fruit has one of the highest brix level readings on a refractometer, meaning that it is very sweet to the taste! There are many different varieties of California grown.

Plumcots available throughout the Summer--variety shipped will depend on availability at time of order. May bruise easily when ripe; handle with care.

To ripen Plumcots, keep at 65 - 70 degrees F. They are ripe when they give under gentle pressure.

Note
Plumcots are sensitive to ethylene producing fruits and vegetables.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.

Any orders that do not have the appropriate shipping method selected will not be shipped out. For assistance, please call us at 800-588-0151.
