Pluot (Plumkot, Aprium) is a hybrid of plum and apricot, with a predominance of plum characteristics, obtained in California.
The shape is similar to plum and apricot, but the skin is still smooth and elastic like that of a plum; the color depends on the variety, it can be from green to burgundy. The juicy pulp is a bit like apricot, but much sweeter, the color is closer to purple.
Pluot is used just like its “parents” – even if you just eat, even jam or compote, or dessert, even wine is made from it.
It is rich in potassium, vitamin C, glucose, and is excellent for colds, as it has antipyretic properties and the ability to strengthen immunity.
