I was at the supermarket the other day looking to try some new fruit, and I picked up some pluots. The first one I ate didn’t agree with me, and I considered writing a post furiously denouncing the whole thing. Then I thought the better of it. Can’t judge a fruit by one specimen. Later, I ate some more. These are good! Then for the past 36 hours I’ve been paralyzed by a simultaneous desire to write an IFA post about pluots and a lack of anything very interesting to say about them.
So instead, a query. How do you say this word, “pluot”? Is it ploo-oht? Ploo-aht? Ploot?
