First Pluot introduced by Floyd Zaiger in 1988. Pluot Flavor Supreme combines the fragrant taste of an apricot and the juiciness of a plum. Greenish-maroon mottled skin, firm red flesh. The fruit is as big as a peach and gets its taste rather on the side of apricot while its juicy texture comes from the plum.
