Enjoy fruits and nuts from the same tree! This variety produces big, delicious apricots with a second treat of delicious almond-like kernels inside the pit. Fruit flesh is firm, yet juicy with a sprightly flavor. The “nuts” can be eaten fresh or used in any recipe calling for almonds. Easy to grow and maintain — you can expect fruit from these trees as early as their third year. Freestone. Ripens in mid July. Self-pollinating.
Do not mix your Stark® SweetHeart™ kernels with the kernels of other apricots or peaches; almost all others are not edible.
