Find it at Cheverly Community Market: Have you tried pluots?

Pluots (also known as plumcots) are a delicious hybrid of the plum and the apricot (at a ratio of about 70% to 30%) that has been sold since 1989 in California. Noted for their sweet, intense flavor and juiciness, they are particularly rich in vitamins A and C.

There are many varieties of pluots, and the Reberts are bringing some especially delicious examples to us at Cheverly Community Market this Saturday. Make sure to stop by their tent and pick up a carton or two -- they're wonderful on their own, but also very tasty in salads, smoothies, and all sorts of other concoctions!
