Apricot Trees

Home grown apricots are succulent and juicy and have a rich aromatic flavour that you do not experience from shop purchased fruits. Thanks to modern breeding there are now reliable varieties available, making them a very worthwhile crop to grow. They require similar growing conditions to peaches - a warm sheltered site in full sun. Our apricots are grown on Montclair rootstock to create a compact tree that is proven to give a heavier crop of larger fruit. Apricots can be trained as a fan on a south or south-west facing wall or fence, 3.6m (12ft) wide and 2m (6ft 6in) high. They can also be grown as free standing bush trees 3.6m (12ft) in height and spread. To ensure rapid establishment, apricot trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order.  All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).

The trees grow quickly and are more compact and easier to grow compared to most apricot varieties. Cot 'n' Candy is one of the best varieties for growing in the UK. The golden fruits are often blushed red and are very sweet and juicy with an incredible flavour.
