The Advantages Of Planting Apricot Trees


 Planting an apricot tree in your backyard allows you to enjoy the growing process. Since they are self-fruiting, you will be rewarded with lots of tasty, nutritious fruit. At maturity, apricot trees grow to about 15 to 20 feet tall making them excellent shade trees. The glossy heart-shaped foliage, showy pink-white blossoms in early spring, and soft blush-colored fruit make them a lovely addition to your landscaping.

Depending on the variety, Apricot trees are best suited to grow in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 through 9. The Katy apricot variety is a favorite for warm-winter climates and does well in zones 7-10. The Moorpark apricot can be grown in zones 4-8 and produces a sweet, juicy fruit good for eating fresh, canning, or drying. The delicious golden variety grows in zones 5-9 and provides an early harvest, around late June.

Apricot trees are fun to grow.

Plant apricot trees in soil that drain well, not heavy, but not sandy. They prefer slightly alkaline soil in the pH range of 6.5-8.0. Don't plant them near eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, strawberries, or raspberries. These plants can cause a disease to strike the apricot tree.

Like most fruit trees, apricots have to reach a certain maturity to produce fruit. They spend three to four years growing foliage. During this time, creating fruit would weaken the tree. Pick off any blooms that might turn into fruit. After this, the blossoms, appearing in late February or early March, will need some dry weather to remain on the tree. In about 100 to 120 days, depending on your location, the apricot tree should begin producing fruit.

Apricot trees live long lives, between 40 to 150 years. Although they stop producing fruit in about 25 years, the apricot tree remains a valuable, ornamental tree.
