APRIUMS

The Aprium is a plum and apricot hybrid with mostly apricot heritage. Like apricots, apriums have slightly fuzzy skin. These fruits were originally invented in the late 20th century by Floyd Zaiger and are now grown in parts of Washington and California. There is only one variety of aprium currently on the market. The Honey Rich interspecific is bright orange and has bright orange flesh.

Apriums and pluots (another plum and apricot hybrid) are known for their sweetness and flavor; the sugar content of these fruits is much higher than that of a plum or apricot alone.
