Pluot or Plumcot
Yes, they both exist. And, no, they are not the same thing. Technically, plumcots are a 50-50 cross between a plum and an apricot, while pluots are mostly plum. In the supermarket, pluots are sometimes labeled plumcots and vice versa. Both are sweet and firm, and you can use them—or other stone fruits—interchangeably in recipes.
