Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree

$39.95

Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree produces heavy crops of medium, yellow to orange fruit with excellent flavor and texture very early in the growing season. It blooms late with frost-resistant buds, making it an excellent choice for areas with later Spring frosts. It has what people call a Sweet Pit because you can actually eat the kernel like you would an almond. This Apricot requires about 700 hours of chill time below 45º F.

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.
