Ask a Question
  • Is this a bare root tree?

    Yes it is, so it will ship in Spring of 2023

  • Hi Can you recommend a good companion for my one-year-old Chinese Mormon. I figure having two would enhance yield. I live in zone 7A Eastern Tennessee. Thanks,

    Chinese Sweet Pit and Chinese Mormon are two names for the same grafted clone, so they will not cross pollinate. Hunza or Puget Gold are options that will work better.

  • I don't understand what the info on this tree says "Size Options Semi-dwarf 4'-5'" but then the descriptions says "Grow Height: 15'" So how big will this tree actually get???

    The mature height is 15'. The height when shipped is 4'-5'.

  • I have a couple of questions about the Chinese Sweet Pit apricot. I see a Grow Height of 15' listed but also Size Option Semi-Dwarf 4'-5' on this page. So are there two options to choose from? Also I had one of these trees for 32 years in Albuquerque, NM at elevation 5,500' . It did exceptionally well, but the fruit ALWAYS ripened in mid-June. Yours is listed as August ripening. I am wondering if the climate could be that different here?

    The mature height of the tree is 15' tall, but will be shipped at 4'-5' tall. Our ripening times are for the Pacific Northwest as othe regions will ripen earlier or later.
