Is this tree grafted, or is it grown from seed?
rfmichael on Mar 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The one that I bought was grafted. You can tell the rootsock at the bottom and the grafted part on top of it. Trees from the seeds are a wild card. They may turn out to be ok, but from my experience, I know that they never match the quality of the fruit of the mother three from which the seed was obtained.
what is the bloom time? EARLY? LATE?
NANC L on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Apricot trees will bloom earlier than most other fruit trees, in general. If we're only comparing apricots to apricots, then Moorpark is a mid-to-late blooming variety compared to other apricot varieties.
