In these days of catchy hybrid names like "Brangelina" and "Bennifer" there's a new kid in town; the pluot. I brought some back to the office today for lunch. I picked them out myself and when I walked through the door with them my coworker said,
"What is it?"
I said, "It's a pluot."
She said, "What?"
I said, "A pluot, it's fruit."
She said, "Are you speaking French to me?"
I said, "No, it's a pluot. It's a mix between a plumb and an apricot and I've heard they're really good. Try it."
We ate them and it's true that they are good but I don't see anything special. They just taste like red plumbs. I really see no difference except the inside is a pretty red that fades to yellow. The pluot's only advantage that I can see is that it's more aesthetically pleasing than a plumb. It was kind of a disappointment because a plumb would've cost a lot less.
