This strange-looking fruit caught my eye while shopping at our local grocery store. The name was also quite interesting - dinosaur egg pluot. For some strange reasons, it reminded me of Boulderville at Enchanted Kingdom.
Pluot is a cross hybrid of a plum and an apricot (70% plum, 30% apricot). And apparently, there are other hybrids in this family - the plumcot (50% plum, 50% apricot) and the Aprium (70% apricot, 30% plum).
The dinosaur egg pluot is sweet and juicy, rich in vitamin A, C, calcium, magnesium and fiber. I like it because I can eat two great fruits - apricot and plum - at the same time. How cool is that? :-)
