Moorpark Apricot Tree (Potted)

Moorpark Apricot Tree (Potted)

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.

Semi-Dwarf on Rootpac-R rootstock.

    Guarantee

    We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
