Bought from the market in a pot 3 years ago.  Two years ago I transfered to ground.  It gets sun all day and is thriving.  Last year got one apricot, this year nothing but the tree looks great.

Love the taste of fresh apricots!  Love the heart shaped leaves of the tree.  Love that it is not fussy.  Love that it is growing so well and bearing so much fruit this year.

Growing well, but late spring frosts have so far toasted every fruit. Am going to put a barrel of water under it this week...Good news this year fruiting. Left the grass very long this year (over winter and spring) - which appears to have minimized the...

This variety dates from the late 1600s or earlier.  Said to be Jane Austen's favourite, but were there many competitors back then?!!?
