Apricot Trees

From the same family as plums and peaches, apricot trees are an excellent fruiting tree for the home garden if you have a sunny position and a well drained, humus rich soil. Lots of varieties for sale with differences in fruit texture, taste and ripening times.

So we are looking for a position with as much sun as possible but with protection from frosts and winds. The good thing about apricots are that they are self pollinating, as long as you have bees they will set fruit. Ideally apricots will have a cold winter and a hot summer, so consider careful the planting position.

Apricot Tree Varieties

In terms of varieties we are looking at size and cold hardiness as well as ripening and taste characteristics.

Apricots are best pruned in late winter to early spring once the sap begins to rise.
