A heavy producer of colorful, interesting fruits!

The Dapple Dandy Pluot® tree is a new and distinct variety of interspecific plums. This hybrid’s fruit are referred to as ‘dinosaur eggs’ due to the pale green to yellow coloring with red molting. The flesh is a creamy pink color with a spicy, plum-apricot flavor and a nice acid to sugar balance.

The large clingstone fruits ripen in July – the perfect time for a juicy summer snack! Dapple Dandy Pluots® are wonderful when eaten fresh, but are versatile enough to be made into jams, pies, and as additions to salads. The pluots have great storage qualities as well.

Dapple Dandy is a vigorous and upright growing tree. This stone fruit tree requires 400-500 chill hours. Pollinate with another pluot or Santa Rosa plum for best fruit set.

Plant this unique fruit tree in full sun with well-draining soil and you will be rewarded with large crops of fruit you can’t get at the store!
