Moorpark Apricot Tree

Moorpark Apricot Tree

Rich flavor, great for canning.

The potted Moorpark Apricot tree is a semi-dwarf sized fruit tree that produces a highly prized and sought-after variety of apricot. The tree typically grows to a height of 12-15 feet and is known for its beautiful pinkish-white blossoms that appear in early spring. The Moorpark Apricot fruit is medium to large in size with a bright orange-yellow skin and a juicy, sweet, and slightly tangy flavor. Its rich and succulent taste makes it an excellent choice for eating fresh, drying, canning, or cooking.

The Moorpark Apricot tree requires cross-pollination from another apricot tree to produce fruit. Good pollinators for this variety include the Gold Kist Apricot, the Katy Apricot, and the Blenheim Apricot.

Moorpark apricots are highly versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes, including desserts, jams, and sauces. They can also be added to salads or used as a topping for yogurt or oatmeal. The dried variety is especially popular as a healthy snack.

The history of the Moorpark Apricot tree dates back to the 17th century when it was first cultivated in the town of Moorpark, near London, England. This variety of apricot tree became very popular in the 19th century and was introduced to the United States in the mid-1800s.

Fun fact: The Moorpark Apricot was a favorite of Queen Victoria and was grown in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
