So I waited until the plumogranate came on ad and visited Raley’s again, wanting to see what I imagined was a plum with lots of tiny arils, or seed casings, inside.

It turns out the plumogranate is a plumcot, or plum-apricot cross, that is touted as having the antioxidants of a pomegranate.

The Food and Drug Administration has cracked down on fish fraud — such as calling sablefish black cod, since it’s not a member of the codfish family, or calling rockfish Pacific snapper, since it’s not snapper.

Maybe the FDA needs to crack down on fruit fraud, too.
