Splash Pluot Tree (Prunus ‘Splash’)
Splash Pluot Tree
The Splash Pluot (Prunus ‘Splash’) new and exciting Interspecific fruit trees – complex hybrids of 70 percent Plum, 30 percent Apricot. Regardless of the science behind their creation, they’re absolutely delicious! The sugar content of interspecific is much higher than in standard Plums or Apricots which give this Pluot incomparable sweetness!
It is smooth-skinned like a Plum. This Pluot is sturdy and durable with a luscious flavor! It has the chin-dripping juiciness of a fully ripe Plum without the notoriously tough skin and tart center typical of the parent Plum.
Spring fills your tree out with a flush of pinkish-white blossoms that pollinators go crazy for! Pair With a Burgundy Plum, Santa Rosa Plum, Flavor Grenade Pluot, and Dapple Dandy Pluot as a pollinator partner.
Splash Pluot Tree looks gorgeous as a specimen tree and flowering accent. Tall and narrow growing, these can easily tuck into any sized garden or orchard, even pruned smaller yet for containers and planters. Perfect as a front yard accent or pinpoint shade for garden beds and seating areas.
It can be eaten fresh, dried, or in desserts. Splash Pluot is yellow, turning to orange-red at maturity with yellow flesh. It is a beautiful upright tree that looks like it is hung with Christmas lights when the fruit is hanging!
Fruit trees need full sun for the most blooms and therefore the most fruit. Plant in a location that’s well enriched and well-drained, and provide regular water and fertilizer throughout the growing season. Otherwise, Pluots are low-maintenance!
Splash Pluot Tree is a unique tree and the best of both the Plum and Apricot world! Beauty, fruit and flowers without sacrificing space! Juicy fruit that’s perfectly adaptable to hot climates and small yards!
