APRICOT – Prunus armeniaca

Originally domesticated in China, apricots are grown successfully around the world.  These small TREES are a manageable size for the home orchard growing to around 4-5m tall. FLOWERS appear in spring with FRUIT  (a drupe similar to a small peach, ranging in colour from yellow to orange) ready to harvest Dec – Feb.  As they are self fruiting, you typically don’t need two apricot trees to produce fruit. They are relatively easy to grow and will produce loads of fruit year after year that can be enjoyed fresh from the tree, made in to jam, bottled or dried. Apricots we supply are better suited to warmer climates. HARVEST is from Dec – Feb.
