About The Summer Delight Aprium® Tree

A late-ripening apricot-plum hybrid with great flavor!

Another successful Floyd Zaiger hybrid, the Summer Delight Aprium® tree is becoming popular with backyard growers and homesteaders. It is a reliable bearer of juicy, yellow-fleshed, freestone fruit that ripens later than other apriums.

Summer Delight blooms in April and sets fruit in late July into August. These apriums stay golden in color when ripe, with little to no blushing. The firm fruit has a nice sweet-to-acid balance, making them versatile for baking, canning, and fresh eating. A true apricot flavor with just a hint of plum.

How to Grow Summer Delight Apriums

This apricot-plum hybrid tree is a consistent bloomer and producer. The Summer Delight Aprium tree thrives in warm climates and only requires a minimum of 500 or so chill hours. Plant in a location where the aprium is sheltered from the wind but still gets full sun. In very hot areas, afternoon shade is okay. This aprium is not bothered much by pests and diseases, but a regular dormant spray is recommended.
