The best pluot variety we grow! This dark-skinned pluot with red flesh is a customer favorite! It has an intense rich flavor combined with sweet, spicy tones that are reminiscent of our Santa Rosa plums. Their firm texture softens beautifully as the fruit continues to ripen!
They come off the tree right at the peak of our harvest along with some of our other best varieties like the O'Henry and the Cal Red. Flavor Kings are typically available early to mid-August.
Shown in the second photo here at about two to three weeks from harvest, the Flavor Kings will grow even larger and darken up beautifully by the time their sugars are fully developed.
Flavor King pluots were mentioned in the New York Times in 2017 in an article about Chez Panisse executive chef, founder, and owner Alice Waters' biography “Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook.”
