The skin was tart, pluots were sweet, juicy and as they became more ripe I noticed a flavor of pear became more pronounced. It took me awhile to figure out what the flavor was. It wasn’t off putting or overwhelming. Texture was all pluot. They came perfectly packaged in various degrees of ripeness. Enjoyed them immensely.
For years I have said the fruit I get in today's markets are nothing like the fruit of my youth. Picked too soon, damaged and bruised I am constantly disappointed. No longer is that the case. I can honestly say getting the fruit of the month from Frog Hollow Farm has given me memories of the luscious , sweet and fragrant fruits of my youth.
I have been in high end fine dining restaurants for decades working with the top chefs in America and I can honestly say the fruit from Frog Hollow has been some of the best fruits I have tasted in years and years. I get as giddy as a kid when our monthly 5lb box arrives and I have been compelled to order more and more. Thank you Frog Hollow for making me believe, once again, in the magic of perfect fruit!
Tasty and so juicy…will order again!
The reason for only 4 stars, one of the most gorgeous pluots in the box had a big gash in it. This had to be there at time of packing as box was not damaged and neither was any of the other fruit.
