Fact of the Day: Pluot Non-GMO

GMO's can be confusing and somewhat scary...maybe not enough research.But I honestly have never heard of this fruit. Now I am curious. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

GMO scares me, and yet I'm sure I eat things that have been genetically modified all of the time. I try to do research on it and find lots of conflicting reports.
