Introduction

A President Plum, also known as "Plumcot" or "Pluot," is a hybrid fruit resulting from the crossbreeding of plums and apricots. This fruit typically takes on the visual characteristics of a plum, with a smooth skin and a range of colors from red to purple, while inheriting the sweet and juicy qualities of an apricot. The exact appearance and flavour can vary depending on the specific variety, but generally, President Plums are small to medium-sized, round or slightly oval, and have a deliciously sweet and mildly tart taste. They are enjoyed fresh as a snack.

History

Originating in Southeast Asia, the President Plum fruit has been cultivated and enjoyed for centuries. Its name is said to have been inspired by its regal appearance and a claim that it was once a favourite of a president in the region. Throughout history, it has been treasured for its sweet and aromatic qualities, often used in traditional Asian cuisines for both its taste and medicinal properties.

Regions

The President Plum's roots can be traced back to countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia, where it has thrived in the tropical climates. Today, it is also cultivated in various parts of the world with suitable growing conditions, including parts of South America and even certain regions of the United States. 

Flavours & Texture

When you bite into a President Plum, you'll experience a burst of flavour that combines sweetness with a hint of tartness, creating a harmonious balance. The texture is smooth, and the flesh is juicy.
