Sibley's Patio Apricot 'Flavorcot'

Sibley's Patio Apricot 'Flavorcot' Code: PNA032

£36.95 36.9500 In Stock New

 Sold Out 

This patio version of 'Flavorcot' has been developed by fruit authority Will Sibley, who has for many years been working on a range of fruit trees for the home gardener. It has been grafted onto a dwarfing selection of seedling peach ‘Montclair’ using special grafting techniques to keep the tree even more compact. 'Flavorcot' 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. Can be kept restricted to a height of 1.2m (4ft).

 

Supplied as a one year old tree in a 4 litre pot. The tree is grafted at about 30cm (1ft) above soil level and has 2-3 shoots about 20cm (8in) long that will quickly develop into a bushy head.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: mid July.


Plant size: 4 litre pot.


Available for delivery: all year.


Please note: Sibley's Patio Apricot 'Flavorcot' is excluded from the 'Buy any 2 Pot Grown Fruit Trees SAVE £5' offer.


 

 

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).
