Dapple Dandy Pluot

September 17th, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you tend to go for the quiet girl in the corner with a few too many freckles and slightly outdated clothes, but with captivating eyes and a strong sense of self, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★½☆

Not necessarily pretty on the outside but unusual enough to draw my attention – dark burgundy with mustard yellow speckles, the inside is a lovely bloody red, unexpected and intriguing.

AROMA Rating: ★★★★☆

Mild but perfumy, almost heady – I really wanted to breath deeply.

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★★

Juicy, but with a great bite, almost crunchy but not quite – ideal for me perhaps.

TASTE Rating: ★★★★★

Sweet, perfumy, lovely in every way but with a slightly tart finish.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★½

Wow, I didn’t want to stop eating this enough to write down what I thought of how it tasted – so intriguing and delightful, heady and strong, with a mild tart finish.
