Sugar Twist:

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.

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)
