Description

A late bloomer, in a good way. One of the very few late-blooming apricots, a coveted heirloom variety that becomes covered with breathtaking, frost-resistant flowers. The fruit looks very much like Wilson Delicious, with a lovely oblong shape and beautiful sunset blush over about 40% of clear orange-yellow background. The flesh is soft and the flavor is mild vs. other more tangy/pungent varieties, and has the bonus of an edible kernel. Very nice for fresh eating, jams and canning. Expect yields of 25 pounds per tree! Freestone. Ripens in late June. Self-pollinating. Originated in Idaho and was introduced in 1984 by Stark Bro’s.
