Autumn Glo Apricot
Autumn Glo Apricot is a unique variety that ripens its fruit exceptionally late, from August into September! Flowers open midseason before ripening what is widely considered one of the best tasting apricots available. Extend your apricot season into late summer with Autmn Glo!
Delectably sweet and tender, fully ripe Apricots are a unique taste treat. Difficult to ship when ripe, Apricots are best grown at home or purchased from a local farmer. Apricots like half day to full day sun, well drained soil, and begin bearing in 2-3 years. To help prevent disease problems, spray with copper in fall and again in winter and early spring during dry spells.
