Wenatchee Moorpark Apricot Fruit Tree

Similar to the famed Moorpark Apricot, Wenatchee Moorpark Apricot is prized for its ability to thrive in climates that have very wet springs, such as Western Oregon and Washington! Skin and flesh are both a beautiful bright orange and fruits are delicious eaten fresh, dried or canned.

Delectably sweet and tender, fully ripe Apricots are a unique tasty 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.
