Common questions about growing Plumcots

1. What is a plumcot?

A plumcot, also known as a pluot, is a hybrid fruit that is a cross between a plum and an apricot. It is a relatively new fruit, having been first developed in the late 19th century. Plumcots are typically 50% plum and 50% apricot, but there can be some variation in the ratio of the two fruits depending on the variety.

Plumcots have a sweet, juicy flavor that is similar to both plums and apricots. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.

2. Are Plumcots self-pollinating?

Plumcots are not self-pollinating. This means that they will not produce fruit without the pollen from another plumcot or apricot tree. If you want to grow plumcots, you will need to plant at least two compatible varieties to ensure pollination.

Here are some compatible plumcot varieties that you can plant together:

If you are not sure which plumcot varieties are compatible, you can ask The Plant Company.

3. How long are Plumcots good for?

Here are some tips on how to store plumcots to keep them fresh for as long as possible:

If you want to enjoy your plumcots for a longer period, you can also freeze them. To freeze them, wash them thoroughly and dry completely. Cut the plumcots into slices or halves, and remove the pits. Arrange the plumcots in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze them until they are solid. Once frozen, transfer the plumcots to a freezer-safe bag or container. Frozen plumcots will last for up to 6 months.

4. What is the best pollinator for Plumcots?

The best pollinator for plumcots depends on the variety of plumcot you are growing. However, some general recommendations include:

It is generally best to plant two plumcot trees within 10-15 m from each other to ensure pollination. You can also prune the trees regularly to encourage flowering and plant a bee-friendly garden to attract pollinators.

5. When should I eat Plumcot?

Plumcots reach their peak flavor and ripeness when they are soft to the touch, have a slightly wrinkled skin, and emit a sweet, fruity aroma. This typically occurs around late summer or early fall for most plumcot varieties.

Here are some signs that a plumcot is ripe and ready to eat:

  1. Softness: The flesh of the plumcot should yield slightly to gentle pressure. If it's still firm, it may need more time to ripen.
  2. Skin Texture: The skin should have a slightly wrinkled or puckered appearance, indicating that the flesh is softening and the sugars are developing.
  3. Aroma: A ripe plumcot should emit a sweet, fruity aroma, similar to a mix of plum and apricot.
  4. Colour Change: Some plumcot varieties may change color as they ripen. For instance, the Emerald Gem plumcot turns from green to yellow when ready to eat.

To ensure you're enjoying plumcots at their best, gently press on them to check for softness and check for the skin texture and aroma. If they're not quite ripe, let them sit at room temperature for a day or two to further ripen.

6. Can you eat the skin on a plumcot?

Yes, you can eat the skin on a plumcot. The skin is thin and edible, and it contains nutrients like fibre and antioxidants. In fact, eating the skin of a plumcot can help you get more nutrients from the fruit.
