Enjoy fruits and nuts from the same tree! This variety produces big, luscious apricots with a second treat of tasty almond-like kernels inside the pit. Fruit flesh is firm, yet juicy with a sprightly flavor. The “nuts” can be eaten dried or used in any recipe calling for almonds. Easy to grow and maintain! Blooms late to avoid spring frosts and has an extended bloom period. Discovered in Homedale, Idaho in 1970. 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.
