An apricot tree is an attractive landscape tree, and besides its good looks, it produces ripe, golden fruit that is bursting with flavor! When the beautiful orange-colored fruits arrive, it’s a tell-tale sign that summer has arrived. Homegrown fruit always tastes better, and people like to use the apricot fruit dried in homemade trail mix or canned year-round as a tasty addition to salads. And while there are several apricot varieties to choose from, we only carry the best, most reliable varieties for our area – Gold Kist, Katy, and Royal (Blenheim).
Apricot trees originated in China, and when planted in your yard, they can thrive in a spot with full sun exposure. They are deciduous so that they let the warmth of the sun in during winter and can be an attractive shade tree in the summer! Homeowners and landscapers alike love that they are easy to grow and maintain. When in bloom, an apricot tree can add beautiful color to any landscape with their pink or white flowers.
All it takes is one bite of an apricot to enjoy the luscious, mouth-watering flavor that is sure to satisfy.
