I often get Ataulfo mangoes, I love them. Sweet with a bit of tart, and as CG said, not stringy. I've had pluots, but rarely, and as I can't actually remember their flavour profile, I'd say it wasn't a memorable fruit for me.
I love apricots, though, and plums... though that mango variety is lovely.
