Pluerry is an interspecific cross between a plum and a sweet cherry, a brand new fruit type from the genius of Floyd Zaiger. Predominantly of plum and cherry, combining the sweetness of a cherry with that summer fresh plum zing. Much larger than a cherry, this precocious and prolific fruit will hang on the tree for over a month making it not only a tasty treat but also a beautiful accent for the garden.
Newest in our line of ultra high flavor interspecific Pluerrys (plum + cherry); Sugar Twist is unique in that it harvests a month earlier than Sweet Treat. Tested as 46MC410, this red skin and yellow fleshed Pluerry has the sugar sweet taste of a ripe cherry with that twist of plum you expect in this fruit type. Pollinated by Flavor King Pluot® or Emerald Beauty plum as well as most mid to late blooming varieties of Pluot®, Pluerry™ and Japanese plums will be a suitable match. Sugar Twist is estimated to require 800 chill hours. Patent Pending. (Zaiger)
