Apricot Tree 'Flavorcot'

Apricot Tree 'Flavorcot'

Apricot Tree 'Flavorcot' Code: PNA006

£34.95 34.9500 In Stock New

Prunus armeniaca 'Flavourcot' (syn. 'Bayato')

This new variety represents a massive advancement in apricot breeding as it performs exceptionally well in our UK climate and can produce in excess of 750 fruits on a four year old free standing tree. The fruits are very large and juicy with a red blush and succulent, sweet orange flesh. Superb aromatic flavour.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: early Aug.


Available for delivery: late November - early April.


 

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. With the exception of Aprigold, Sibley's Patio Flavorcot and Sibley's Patio Tomcot, 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).
