Cold Hardy Apricot

Semi-dwarf on Citation rootstock.

  • Zones: 4-7
  • Chill hours: 700
  • Bloom Time: Late (Based on typical Central Valley California weather)
  • Harvest: June 10 - June 20
  • Looks: Reddish peach, small to medium sized.
  • Personality: Sweet, mild flavor.
  • Facts of note: Very cold hardy. Relatively late blooming for an apricot, so recommended for climates with unpredictable spring snows and frosts. Tree sets heavy crops. Sometimes called the 'Mormon' apricot.
  • Pollination: Self-fruitful.

Fruit ripens late June to early July. Likes well-drained, moderately fertile soil. Thin fruit early in season to maximize size and quality. Benefits from a good preventative maintenance routine, including pruning and spraying in the dormant season. Harvest 2nd year.

Citation Rootstock is tolerant of wet soil, induces early dormancy in dry soil, is very winter hardy, resists root knot nematodes, and produces a 12'-18' tree. By pruning you can keep your tree at any height.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January. If you'd like us to split your shipments, please contact us at (800) 784-1722 or Additional shipping charges will apply.
