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.

    So delicious, however….don’t eat more than one. The “grenade” refers to more than the flavor!

    Oh my Violet. That sounds awful. I definitely haven’t had that problem!
