apricots in Brisbane

    4 responses

apricot02 starts with ...
Is there any evidence that apricots will fruit in and around Brisbane? If so, what type,and where? I've tried cherries that were recommended with no success. Has any
one tried a plumcot in Brisbane? If so,
what type and where did you purchase it?
Other low chill stone fruits from Daleys have fruited well here (if you can keep off the flying foxes and possums!)

I would only try the Cot-n-Candy aprium (mostly apricot hybrid) from Flemings which you should be able to find. You could also graft on at a later date a low chill selection of Blenheim/Royal known as the 'Kingston Royal'. This would be great for cross pollinisation too and the yield might be decent.

You might also be interested in the pitomba (Eugenia luschnathiana) from South America, because its taste is comparable to an apricot.

Not sure what cherries you tried, but Pretty Gully is the only thing I would try or Minnie Royal/Royal Lee which some are trying in Brisbane right now.

Pitomba grows well and it does taste like apricot, a good alternative.
Nearest thing to a cherry, would be Cedar bay cherry. Has a good taste but not nearly as good as real cherry.

Pretty gully only for area west of Ipswich.
I doubt very much MR/RL will prove itself in Brisbane, anyone believing it will , has deluded themselves to say the least.
Hope I'm proven wrong.

Thanks Tommoz and Carl76. The cherry was Pretty Gully. Still interested in plumcott, perhaps. apricot02
