Picking the Perfect Pluot!

Pluots tend to get tender as they ripen. Be sure to pick pluots that still have a little firmness to them so they can ripen to your likeness. The trick is to find that sweet spot between firm and tender when they are at peak flavor: too firm and they may be still tart; too soft and they may taste overripe.
