Home > Fruit Trees > Apricot Trees
The apricot tree produces a very sweet fruit that looks similar to a small peach, except that the skin is smooth and velvety (small hairs).  The apricot fruit is exceptionally sweet and is saturated with firm fructose, sugar crystals that makes the oval shaped fruit ideal for drying to eat and enjoy later during the winter non-productive season.  The apricot trees are self pollinated, but most botanists recommend that two different cultivars be planted for the best harvesting outcome.  Apricots trees are heavy bearing in zones of 5 to8, but in the Northern zones, the apricot trees sometimes flower too early and a heavy frost or freeze might reduce or eliminate the crop development.  Apricot trees are self fertile and require no companion tree for cross pollination.
