Consistent Large Harvests

Semi-dwarf on Citation rootstock.

  • Zones: 4-8
  • Chill hours: 500
  • Bloom Time: Early (Based on typical Central Valley California weather)
  • Harvest: June 10 - June 20
  • Looks: Large, orange fruit with firm, sweet flesh.
  • Personality: Orange colored and slightly glossy skin with a trace of blush on the side that is exposed to the sun. The pit is medium-large and freestone.
  • Facts of note: Early harvest, this is one of the most consistently productive apricots. Originated at Prosser, WA, introduced in 1989.
  • Pollination: Partly self-fruitful; biggest crops if cross-pollinated by another apricot.

The most consistently productive apricot variety at Dave Wilson Nursery 1992-97. One of the earliest ripening fruits, 2-3 weeks before Wenatchee Moorpark. Because it blooms so early, it's most productive in areas where they get enough chill hours, but killing frosts are over before they bloom. Needs well-drained, moderately fertile soil. Thin fruit early in season to maximize size and quality. Susceptible to bacterial canker, shot hole fungus, brown rot and peach twig borer. Harvest 3rd 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. Pat. No. 7034.
