Flavor Supreme pluot

Scott,

I grafted a branch of FS from your wood two years ago and it finally produces 5 fruits this year. Medium size, excellent sweet flavor, greenish purple skin and bright purple flesh. I also grafted a branch of Santa Rosa next to it for pollination. I wish FS set more fruit because I really enjoy the flavor.

Tony:

Flavor Supreme is a great piece of fruit but nearly everyone sees poor fruit set. The bees don't like the flowers. I get much better set if a good pollinator is interwoven with the FS blossoms. So next year if possible tie the Santa Rosa right against the FS. A couple years when I've done that I've actually had to thin FS.
