Description

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.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (with the exception of persimmon trees, which have a deadline of June 15th)! Claims placed after June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will be denied.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please perform a scratch test by checking for green under the bark, a few inches over the graft. If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, that means your tree/plant is dead or dying. Watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty on how to perform this simple test. If the scratch test revealed that your plant is dead or dying, pull it from the ground and take pictures of the entire tree/plant, including the roots. Submit your claim & pictures by using the “Return an Item” tool on our Customer Service page (or email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com) no later than June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees). We will review your claim and issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence that the tree/plant was not killed by root rot, rodent or mechanical damage.

Reviews

More moist packing materials on roots was needed.

The trees were in good shape but the bare roots were starting to dry out by the time Fed Ex got it to my way rural home. They must have held it all day Sunday and delivered Monday so I was at work all day and the box was just sitting there. Maybe should not ship right before weekend, but planted them right away and the tomcot is already sprouting .
