Prunus dasycarpa 'Tlor-Tsiran'

Tlor-Tsiran is a selection of an unusual, naturally occurring hybrid of apricot (P. armeniaca) and myrobalan plum (P. cerasifera) from central Asia. We tasted it in Russia at the Krymsk Station near the Caucasus mountain range and were transported by the flavor. The skin of the tasty oval fruit is mildly fuzzy, somewhat like an apricot, but is a dark purple instead of yellow-orange. The succulent flesh is marbled red and yellow. 

The tree's many showy white blossoms appear slightly later than other apricots, and are usually pollinized by apricots or plum crosses. Dry weather during bloom time ensures good pollination; hand-pollinating can also be helpful.
