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.

Probably a Better Tree for a Different Zone
I live in the Denver area. I planted this tree and a Wilson Delicious apricot tree fall of 2014, (about 2 years ago). I know that apricot trees don't generally bear a lot of fruit in my area because of late frosts, but I think apricot trees are beautiful and if we would ever be lucky enough to get fruit it would just be an added bonus. Both trees were doing fantastic, but the weather this winter was a little odd and this tree bloomed extremely early. It got hit by a frost that killed all of the blossoms and leaf buds on the tree. It kind of started to recover and then got hit with a second frost which again killed all of the newer leaf buds and ultimately killed the tree. I would imaging this would be a great tree for an area without a late frost, but wouldn't recommend it for an area with a late frost. The Wilson delicious on the other hand didn't bloom or started growing folliage until after that second last frost. Hopefully it continues to do well.

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.

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!

My apricot tree did really well the year it was planted. It died over the winter. I'm not sure why. Will be replacing it with a more cold resistant apricot tree.

Apricot tree
I am very pleased with this tree. It is flourishing at this point. Which is great since it's only been in the ground one full year. I planted Fall of 2015. This spring 2017 the tree has grown a lot and looks full and healthy.
