We are looking forward to fresh and dried apricots, which my husband loves. This variety is suitable for our zone, 5a, and is freestone.

I'm taking a chance here... I don't know that much about the different kinds of apricots... just know that as a kid, I loved them

Never grew apricots. Love them and my husbands grandmother used to have an apricot tree and would make apricot pies.

Very hardy, virgorous tree.
One year in a 6 gallon bucket and the tree had a dozen blossoms.... you'd never get such quick results from an apple tree.... I plucked the blossoms off because the tree only had a few short branches, 4 feet high and put it in my greenhouse.... now it has a dozen branches, some are over two feet long and the tree has grown up another two feet, hundreds of leaves so next spring I'll let the apricots grow. It will always be a potted plant, though, my zone is 3... too cold outside for apricot trees, even the dwarf Chinese apricot I planted outside hasn't given me any apricots.... too few blooms, too long chill time (winter)... around here in the mountains apricots will have to be grown in the greenhouse.... they are easy to pollinate with a small artist paintbrush because the blossoms are self pollinating.

This variety arrived in very good condition and started showing visible signs of growth within three weeks of planting. I'ts a very strong and robust grower in my E. Mass. area. I'll check in later when it starts to bear, but so far - 5 thumbs up!

It was planted last fall and is happy and healthy. It is in a spot that was flooded for a time after planting but it did not seem to suffer from the extra water. It has a healthy orange like color and buds on the bark.

We received the dwarf tree in November and went thru a deep freeze here in California and now their blooming their leaves beautifully. I had previously purchased two other dwarfs from them. I wrapped the apricot in foam but the other two had been here awhile so they were on their own but they all made it! Yea! Just going thru a lot of rain now.

The blooms on this tree were frozen this year, but the tree rooted well and is very healthy.

Harglow Apricot in lower Michigan;
It is now in its second season and doing well. Sadly, I did not protect it well enough and the deer ate off all of the new growth a month after I planted it so I had my doubts as to its survival. However, I increased the height of the fencing that surrounded it, it sent up about 4 inches of new growth during the rest of the season and I just crossed my fingers as to if this was enough to get through the winter. Well, it did survive and is now responding robustly to spring with about 4 more inches of new growth by the middle of May and still expanding.
At about 4-1/2 feet tall now it is still too young to bloom but I am confident that within the next two years I will be enjoying the first fruits of it.
The Pear trees that I ordered the previous year grew fast, now stand about 8 feet tall and are already bearing a few fruit this year. The Plum trees that I ordered at the same time are also now 8 feet tall, had a few blooms this spring but not enough to attract the bees. I am very pleased with all of the trees I have received from Stark Brothers.
I wanted to order a Golden Delicious Apple tree from them too but they only offer it in the dwarf and semi-dwarf sizes and I needed a "Full" sized tree, had to order it from another supplier. Anything less that a full sized fruit tree is little more that food for the deer over here.

Hardy tree.
This is a great tree to survive the various seasonal changes we have in Kansas. Very hardy and I expect in a couple of years to have some wonderful apricots!

No ripe fruit yet, but growing beautifully.
I started my bare root trees in big pots of coir and pearlite, dressed with kelp and bone meal and organic shellfish compost. I replanted them in the fall with full root balls, and they are all doing great. These apricots self-pollinated and the tree was full of fruit the second summer. It dropped every last green one, so I am going to keep feeding it and pinching blossoms this summer to give it more of a chance to grow before it tries to bear again. If it hadn't been too soon I would have harvested 30 apricots off of this tiny little tree!

Good tree
This tree has the prettiest leaves!!! They are dark green and on the ends of the stems they turn orange. Not sure how to describe them, they are gorgeous.
It grows well (at least here in mid Missouri) and doesn't have any bug or fungus problems!
