Prunus hybrid-Pluot(R) 'Dapple Dandy'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Apriums(R) and Pluots(R) have similar growth characteristics to apricots and plums.  They often are vigorous and require more care to pollinate and set crops.  Diseases and insect susceptibility is usually similar to plums or apricots, so care for them well.


A Little History about Dapple Dandy Pluot(R)

Apriums(R) and Pluots(R) are trademarks of Floyd Zaiger of California, who is one of the pioneers in making what are called inter-specific crosses in the Prunus genus.  While some of these crosses happen naturally, almost all of the important ones have to be specifically bred by crossing, re-crossing, and back-crossing plums, peaches, apricots, nectarines and other species in the Prunus genus.  It is a time consuming project, but many interesting cultivars have resulted from his and his family's hard work.  The resulting varieties often have very interesting and distinct flavors combining the flavors and qualities of these different stone fruits.
