After my first review, I decided to go to the part of the farm where I have my two Apricots to get a closer look at them. These are trees that must have been grafted from Peach trees??? I used an app to help identify the leaves. The long slender leaves are Peaches and the others all come back as different Plums, most common suggestion was Cherry Plum. What happened to the Apricots to be a combination of other trees??? The lower part of the trunks has the Peach coming from them. A few inches above, where the trunk turns, are the Plums or maybe Apricots??? Now what?
I received a couple of the Apricots in early June 2023. I enjoy watching them grow these past few months. I cannot wait for the day to come to pick the fruits! Soon I’ll have a few dozen, or more, fruit trees, along with some wild ones along the outer parts of the woods.
The apricot tree is leafing out. Right now I'm very happy.
