QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Hello, after reading the other questions I'm curious of you recommend any apricot for semi-humid summers of Michigan? We are in zone 6a on the west-coast, north of Muskegon.

    Apricots are not very tolerant of summer humidity due to their susceptability to brown rot and other warm summer diseases. You can spray for those if you choose, but we don't have a variety that will just do it by itself.

  • Will this variety do well in Southern Alabama? And what other varieties would do well?

    Apricots suffer in humid summers, requiring more of the dry heat found in the southwest. We don't advise it.

  • What is the mature size for the semi-dwarf vs dwarf?

    Dwarf tops out at 10'-12' tall and semi-dwarf 12'-14 tall

  • Does the pollinator have to be another variety of apricot? If not, what other types of trees would serve the purpose?

    Yes it does and any other apricot.

Nice tree!

I bought a dwarf size bare root tree. It came at the appropriate time to be planted, and was well pruned. I planted it last week, and it already is showing signs of buds and is doing really well! I paid a little more for it than my other dwarf apricot trees, but well worth it. I'm pretty confident this one will take off. Nice tree, guys! Thanks!
