Default Pruning Apriums, Plumcots and Peacotums

Should I prune Apriums, Plumcots and Peacotums as I would apricots (ie, no winter pruning) plums (dormant pruning 20% of last year's growth) or peaches (dormant pruning 50% of last year's growth)?

Prune like apricot. Bella Gold Peacotum™, by the way, is considered an interspecific apricot, not an i.s. plum. (DWNbeta.com recently updated.)

Great question. I too had wondered.
