Semi-dwarf on Citation rootstock.
Chill hours: 700
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.
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.
Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Almond, Mulberry, Walnut, Persimmon, and Jujube -- 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 unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
