Dinosaur Eggs

I've bought pluots before, but none as cute as these speckled ones labeled as "dinosaur eggs". The idea of branding fruit is simultaneously fascinating and perplexing.

And some random trivia for the day: the pluot is actually an improvement on an earlier plum/apricot hybrid the plumcot which was a closer 50/50 split between the two. The pluot purports to have combined just the best features of the two-more like 70% plum and 30% apricot.
