Bare Root Apricots

The first apricots came from China or Siberia. The fruit is a great favorite today, but apricot trees are one of the most difficult of the stone fruits to grow due to their early blooming period. Therefore, areas without late frosts are more suitable for apricots. Modern breeding, however, has attempted to increase the growing zone for these tasty fruits.

Tomcot has been proven to be extremely reliable at Dave Wilson Nursery in the Central Valley of California. Several varieties with a later bloom time have been developed in Canada, for example, Harglow and Harcot. A sturdy row cover can be put in place after the tree has blossomed to protect it from frost and wind. Under those circumstances, having a smaller tree is beneficial which also helps when it comes to harvesting. Most of the varieties we offer are self-fruitful, although two varieties will provide the biggest crop.
