My husband wanted an apricot tree. I chose the variety because it is a dwarf self-pollinator.

It is truly the best. I am replacing a tree I had.

I love apricots and would like to dry the fruit in my dehydrator. I chose the Wilson Delicious because the description stated they were a good variety to dry, can, preserve.

Wishful thinking that this one will miss frosts in my garden.

Awesome Wilson Apricots
I just planted my orchard in April 2015. I am thrilled with all the baby apricots.
It amazing! My tree is a dwarf and to avoid branches getting overloaded and breaking, I removed about a third of them.
Since this is my first season, I can't comment on taste.
The tree is strong, healthy, and loaded with fruit!
I am excited for the day they will be ripe!

Wilson Delicious Apricot
I planted this Wilson apricot tree last April. It's a dwarf supreme. It was only 4 feet tall. It grew to almost 7 feet and it looked great this year it got flowers. We had a late frost in April the flowers did not freeze off. The tree has 5 apricots on it. Can't wait till they are ripe very happy with the tree

Wilson delicious apricot
I have planted a lot of fruit trees, but sometimes heartiness and flavor are opposing concepts. Problem is, you don't really know how some fruit will taste unless you have tried that exact variety, or wait several years for your trees to bear fruit. Anjou pears are a perfect example--hard as rocks. I planted two varieties of apricots and I hooe for the best. They are still alive after a year in the ground, that's a good sign. Stark is good about resending the ones that fail.

Nice Tree
This tree is doing pretty well, but I was a little disappointed that it did not flower this year, seeing that it was two years old, but maybe that is normal for apricots. This is my first time growing one That being said, the growth is good and the tree seems very healthy. Looking forward to a crop of apricots!
