Moorpark Apricot DWARFING

DWARFING variety makes this tree more suitable for Espaliering that its non dwarfing counterpart. Our favourite well-know old-style apricot with great flavour. Unlike the more modern varieties, the fruit are a little smaller but the flavour more intense. A classic apricot colour - orange with a red blush on the sunny side. Does well in dry summers. Makes a compact tree and is self fertile.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
