I got a Peachcot scion from a recent CRFG Scion Exchange and was wondering if it can be grafted onto an Asian Plum. I’ve had success grafting an Apricot scion to our Asian Plums, but I know Peaches can’t be grafted to an Asian Plum1.
Anyone know if Peachcot scions can be grafted to an Asian Plum?

I noticed some Plumcot, Pluot and Aprium scions at the last CRFG Scion Exchange… I know they are all Plum/Apricot crosses, but I wonder if there is a technical difference between the three… so I posted an inquiry at the California Rare Fruit Growers Facebook page.
I’ll update this post if I get any responses.

Plumcot = Plum x Apricot
Pluot® = Plumcot x Plum (2/3 plum and 1/3 apricot)
Arium® = Plumcot x Apricot (1/3 plum and 2/3 apricot)
