Flavor Supreme Plumcot

Flavor Supreme is one of the original plum apricot selections from Zaiger Genetics. Early ripening and so so good, this is another consistent taste test winner. Marbled greenish maroon colored skin with red flesh. This variety eats well from firm ripe to when the juice is running down your arm. The intensely rich sweet taste is as good as it gets in early season fruits.

Description

Prunus Interspecific Hybrid ‘Flavor Supreme’

Flavor Supreme is one of the original plum apricot selections from Zaiger Genetics. Early ripening and so so good, this is another consistent taste test winner. Marbled greenish maroon colored skin with red flesh. This variety eats well from firm ripe to when the juice is running down your arm. The intensely rich sweet taste is as good as it gets in early season fruits. More prone to flower early in marginal climates, the Flavor Supreme is best suited to areas where apricot are known to do well. A great variety for planting a group of successive ripening trees, make this your early variety planted along with a Burgundy Plum or Flavor King plumcot for pollination. Good for fresh eating of course but this one is real special for dehydrating, where the intense flavor of this special really comes out.

Planting & Care
Plumcots prefer well-drained soil. If poor drainage is suspected, consider mounding 18 to 12 inches high by 4 feet wide of build a raised bed of 12 to 18 inches high and 3 feet square. Plant directly in the mound or raised bed. Mulching helps retain moisture and stabilizes the soil temperature. Mulch to 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy. Plumcots grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Most are early blooming and can be affected by adverse early season weather. Water regularly, to get established, during the first year. Plumcot trees are extremely fast growing and will grow to 20' tall if you let them. All fruit trees can be kept under 10 feet tall. Pruning in the summer to control the height of your tree is recommended to simplify maintenance and harvesting.
