Chinese Montgamet Sweet Pit Apricot / Mar2624
Also known as the Chinese Golden, Mormon or Large Early Montgamet Apricot. It is called a "sweet pit" because you can eat the kernel like you would an almond, as well as enjoying the flavorful fruit. Its late blooming makes it an excellent choice for higher elevations or late frost areas.
The tree is medium size, precocious and a heavy bearer. Its golden orange medium size fruit is sweet, firm and juicy and ripens over a long period of time. It is winter hardy and self fertile. USDA Zones 4-9. On Marianna 2624 rootstock.
