Flavour Supreme Pluot
Out of stockFlavour Supreme is an unusual and delicious fruit which is a complex cross between a plum and an apricot. The large peach-sized fruits are smooth skinned and very juicy (like a plum) and have a unique flavour, much like a blend of fruit juices. They are deliciously flavoured, yielding fruit of incomparable sweetness. This variety is of the original plum-apricot crosses and a taste test winner.
