Apricot Tree 'Orange Summer'

Apricot Tree 'Orange Summer'

Apricot Tree 'Orange Summer' Code: PNA025

£37.95 37.9500 In Stock New

Prunus armeniaca 'Orange Summer'

This new heavy cropping variety will produce large, attractive fruits with a delicious, sweet, aromatic flavour. Very late ripening, cropping from late August when the other varieties have finished. Unlike other apricots the fruits can be picked and enjoyed from the tree for over a month, whilst remaining in good condition.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: late 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).
