Description

Only requires 500 chill hours! One of the first tree fruits to come from the summer garden. A prolific producer that bears heavy crops of very generously-sized fruit that can only be described as lusciously sweet-tart, with that exquisite, rich apricot flavor everyone wants. The firm texture makes Flavor Giant a top choice for fresh eating and drying. Freestone. Ripens in July. Self-pollinating.

Size & Spacing

Mature Size

When your tree matures, it will be approximately 15 - 20' tall x 15 - 20' wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 15 - 20' apart to ensure room for growth.

Pollination

This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

Do you have any any dwarf varieties of apricot trees? My preference would be for fall planting, but it would be equally appreciated to know for spring plantings.
Jerla G on Aug 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. At this time all that is available is standard sizing which mature 12-15 feet. Stock is unknown for spring but will update after the 1st of the year.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Is it possible to ship earlier - wesite suggest end of Oct. for our area, we have better success if we plant late Sept to early Oct for new tree planting?
Onehandedgardner on Jun 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Unfortunately we can not ship any sooner than the date listed on the website as the growers will not be releasing these until this date to ensure Stark quality standard. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

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