Apricot - Moorpark (Grafted) 8/10

Steve1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3441 days 18hrs

Comments: -

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 frost damage i normally get.

First harvest this year! Only about 4kg, but a start...

Question:

Has anyone seen a variety called Morocco? Jackie French talks about it and it would be much more suited to my climate than Moorepark!
