Tlor-Tsiran apricot / Lovell

(Prunus dasycarpa) As far as we know, only Raintree is offering Black Apricots to American gardeners. This is a selection of an unusual, naturally occurring hybrid of apricot (P. armeniaca) and myrobalan plum (P. cerasifera) from central Asia. We tasted it in Russia at the Krymsk Station near the Caucasus mountain range and enjoyed the flavor. The skin of the tasty oval fruit is fuzzy like an apricot but is a dark purple. The trees showy white blossoms appear slightly later than other apricots. The flesh is marbled red and yellow. While it has fruited well in cold climates, we have not successfully fruited it here at Raintree in our maritime climate. USDA Zones 4-8. On Lovell rootstock.
