Very adapted to our elevations. Golden yellow fruits have a reddish blush and are sweet, firm and juicy! Trees bear young and heavily. Called a “sweet pit apricot” as its pit is edible and tastes of almond!
Apricots are self-fruitful, and they produce better when there is another apricot to serve as a pollinator. The tree we selected has been grafted on to very hardy Manchurian apricot root stock.
