Description

New Product!

The Chinese Apricot Tree is an early bearing, heavy producing variety that is recommended for difficult climates (especially those prone to late spring frosts). It blooms late and is also one of the earliest ripening fruits, making this tree ideal for more northern and high-elevation regions.

The fruit has a tender, yellow to light orange flesh that is full of flavor — Chinese Apricot fruit is of superb quality, and generally freestone, making it easy to use in canning, drying, or in baked goods.

Chinese Apricot fruit ripens in early July. This is a self-pollinating variety.

Is this variety also referred to as "sweet pit" "Mormon" or "Large Early Montgamet Apricot?"

Would the Chinese Apricot be "pollinating partners" with the Moorpark Apricot?
Rochelle J on Jan 2, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Apricots are self pollinating and do not require another variety to bear fruit. However planting a second variety will increase your crop yield.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
