Time to first crop:

2 years
You may see your first Apricots after 2 years but you should not expect to see substantial crops for another 2-3 years after that

Hardiness:

Somewhat hardy
Fares better in the south of the UK and in warmer areas. Best grown in a sheltered spot, preferably south facing. If you can protect its early blossom from frost, then you will ensure a better crop.

Self fertile:

Self fertile
Doesn't require a pollination partner to produce fruit but may produce better crops if one is nearby. In most built up areas, it is unlikely there will not be a suitable tree close enough to pollinate, but in rural areas you should consider making sure there is another tree in the same pollination group within a mile.

Uses:

Eating, cooking, smoothies and juices, jam

Rootstock:

Spacing:

4m

Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Shows some resistance to the main pests and diseases for Apricots. You may see some damage from aphids and caterpillars, which can both be washed away with soapy water. Birds will eat the apricots if given the chance so take steps to prevent this like using a fruit net or bird scarers. Reduce the risk of bacterial canker by pruning to improve airflow and remove rotting organic matter nearby.MORE

Water in well

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly, only in dry spells when needed. You should be able to tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have an established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explained above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavily and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

Full sun

Plant where the tree will receive around 6-8 hours of sunlight daily in spring/summer.MORE

Well drained, loamy soil

Will tolerate less than perfect conditions but may not fruit too well. Will struggle in poorly draining soil.MORE

Feeding not required

Don't worry, this isn't a hungry plant so your food bills won't be going up!MORE

Some structural pruning required

Some pruning should be done each winter to ensure that your Apricot tree maintains a productive shape. This can improve yields and prevent disease.MORE
