Prunus armenica 'Puget Gold'

Officially named and introduced by Washington State University (WSU). Puget Gold is capable of setting and sizing up fruit in cool, wet spring weather and short, cool summers, where all other varieties fail - although it's not a reliable producer every year. This adaptable variety produces large, elongated fruit of very good flavor. The tree blooms in early Spring and the fruit ripens in early August.

A naturally petite grower, the tree can easily be maintained at 15' height and spacing. While it can produce fruit in maritime regions, it still needs the hottest microclimate available.

My apricot tree

When I received this tree two years ago I couldn’t believe how strong and sturdy it was. At the second year, this year, the tree gave us a total of nine sweet and beautiful apricots. I did have to totally enclose it with a net so the squirrels would not get the fruit. Raintree has excellent quality trees. I would highly recommend the puget gold apricot tree!
