Flavor Grenade Pluot

by Fruit Maven

If you like to watch Willy Wonka on repeat while simultaneously playing Candyland, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★½☆☆

Small, brownish green and yellow skin, flesh is dark yellow with hints of a nice brown

AROMA Rating: ★★½☆☆

Barely any aroma – neither good nor bad

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★½☆

Juicy, slightly crunchy, might even call it “al dente”

TASTE Rating: ★★★★★

Perfect sweetness that reminds me of something….but I can’t remember. The flavor doesn’t linger for long so I am required to keep eating it.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

This is a tasty pluot with ideal texture and sweetness like really ripe melon, fruit loops, and candy in all the best ways without being cloyingly sweet.
