Pluots, Miracots & Cherrycots (Bare-rooted)

Pluots, Miracots and Cherrycots are the result of many years of cross-breeding between apricots and other stone fruits.  Pluots a Japanese plum/apricot cross and  Miracots a Mirabelle/apricot cross both have a flavour closer to that of a plum but with a very high sugar content and an intense sweetness.  Cherrycots which are an apricot/cherry cross have a fruit size and flavour that lies somewhere between the two, but with a wonderful cherry like aroma.  All are delicious eaten fresh, but are suitable for cooking and preserves. 

The trees can be grown outside in a sunny, sheltered position or against a wall, but further north they are best grown under glass in a cold green house or in a polytunnel. 

Our Pluots, Miracots & Cherrycots are grafted on a St Julian ‘A’ rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 3.5-4.5m (12-15ft). Trees should be planted 3.5-4.5m (12-15ft) apart.

Pluots, Miracots and Cherrycots are available for delivery from late November until late March.
