One of the earliest ripening fruits. Blooms very early; may be challenging to grow in late frost areas. Needs well-drained, moderately fertile soil. Susceptible to bacterial canker, shot hole fungus, brown rot and peach twig borer.
All apricots are on Citation Rootstock except Pixie Cot (Nemaguard). 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. Trees are 2 years old and should begin to fruit in their 3rd year.
Selecting the Perfect Tree For best success, be sure to choose a tree that will grow in your USDA zone, has an appropriate number of chill hours for your climate. If a pollinator is needed, make sure they're planted within 50 feet of each other and will bloom at the same time. Finally, what are your desired harvest intervals (all at once for canning or spread out for fresh eating). Enjoy!
