If you like plums, you're in for a real treat, Pluots are now available! Pluots are a hybrid between an apricot and a plum, that was developed in the 80's. Store them in a refrigerator, but not for too long (watch my video to find out why). To ripen, let them sit out for a day or so. You'll know when they are ripe by the soft touch and its fragrant smell. Enjoy them at anytime of the day, for me its a great 2pm pick me up.
