Pluots

Don't know if that's how its spelled but I was wondering if its possible to grow them from seed or if they are sterile from the cross breading? And how to go about growing from a pit, I've never been able to grow anything from a pit.......

i'd never even heard of this hybrid fruit before i read you post, so i can't help you on the seed viability question...
i guess you could just buy the fruit and test if the seed will grow...

well i found this while searching and thought i'd add the info for anyone else who was thinking "wtf is a pluot?"

Quote:

Pluot
A pluot (plü-ot) is a tradename for a fruit developed in the late 20th century by Floyd Zaiger.[1] In the United States, the fruit is known by most regulatory agencies as an interspecific plum.[2] It is a complex cross hybrid of plum and apricot, being ¾ plum and ¼ apricot in percentage. The pluot, like the aprium, is derived from the half-plum–half-apricot hybrid called the plumcot.

The fruit's exterior with smooth skin closely resembles a plum's. Pluots are noted for their sweetness (due to a very high sugar content), their intense flavor, and juicy pulp. Pluots are also rich in vitamin A.

Because of their speckled skin, they are sometimes known as dinosaur eggs.




oh and i did a bit more searching and apparently the best way to maintain the hybrid is propagation via grafting, cuttings etc... rather than growing from seed...
that doesn't mean that propagation from seeds is impossible though...

hope that helped a bit :shrug:
