Flavor Delight Aprium on Calif. Central Coast
We ordered our Stark Bros. aprium after a bare-root tree from a local nursery failed to leaf out. The new tree was planted in the same hole and immediately put out a good set of initial leaves. Now, a year later (May, 2016), it has a fine set of healthy branches and is a handsome tree with much promise. No bloom this year, however. Our location, near the beach in Santa Barbara, CA, is not well suited to apricots -- a crop every 4 or 5 years -- but decent for plums. Hopefully the aprium will produce apricot-like fruit with plum productivity.

So far so good
It flowered the first spring and made proto fruit that fell off, I think after practicing this year, it might make big fruit next year. The deer love it and keep it trimmed 4' up but the tree isn't hurt and is growing like mad in my North Florida front yard.
