This large freestone fruit is also called 'Dinosaur Egg'. When the incredibly sweet and delicious red and white flesh is ripe, the yellow/green skin turns a dappled maroon and yellow. A frequent taste test winner for its distinct Plum-Apricot flavor.

Dandy is a good pollinizer for Pluot varieties and among the most widely adaptable to colder climates. Thin the fruit so it doesn't overset and become biennial. Chill hours 300-400.

Ask a Question
  • Will a Dandy and Supreme Pluot pollinate each other? I definitely want a Dandy and/or a Supreme what would a good pollinator for it and the other tree?

    Yes, they should pollinate each other. The universal pollinator for all plouts are Santa Rosa plums.

  • A couple of your mixed variety pluots do not recommend them for western Washington. Are there any pluots suitable for western Washington (Cathlamet - zone 8)

    Sweet Treat is the one pluot that is reliable grown outdoors are the nursery (to ripen it's fruit). You will need a pollinator, of which many Asian plum and other plouts will do, but other pluots are unlikely to fully ripen outside of a greenhouse.

  • Which pollinizer should i buy for DAPPLE DANDY PLUOT?

    Weeping Santa Rose is best, but other Asian plums like Hollywood and Beauty can work too

  • How far apart should I plant multiple semi-dwarf plouts?

    14-16 foot centers

  • I see the santa rosa plumb is used as a universal pollinator but can find it on the website. Is there another one that can be used?

    We usually carry Weeping Santa Rosa for warmer climates, but other asian plums like Beauty and Hollywood will also work.

  • I bought one of theses from you 9 years ago. Initially it produced a few delicious fruit, but in the last 4-5 years no fruit.I had an apricot tree that died, and I suspect that was the pollinator. I bought a Japanese plum to pollinate it, but the plum blooms too late. What tree will pollinate dapple Dandy? I live in Oregon City ,OR.

    Santa Rosa plum is the parent and universal pollinator for all the complex plum crosses.

Leafed out within days

The tree arrived on schedule. I soaked the roots in water overnight and heavily pruned back the leading stem. Within less than a week the tree had leafed out. I am very impressed. Thank you!

OMG what a great tree

Like the other trees I have bought here These are the best bare root trees I have ever bought. They are about four or five 4 1/2 feet tall. They came in a very well packed box. The roots were clean, the limbs are in bud, and everything just looks so healthy it was so easy to incorporate into my orchard. I will not buy a tree ever again except from Raintree!
