Apricot Varieties

Apricots are a great, tasty fruit, but can be a challenge to grow.  While apricot trees have a good reputation for winter hardiness, their early blooming characteristics make surviving frosts more difficult.  Plant apricots on the BEST sites for better production.

Due to phytosanitary restrictions and concerns Grandpa will not accept orders or ship Apricot or other stonefruits to CA or HI and the following counties in Colorado---Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Mesa, Rio Grande, Saguache Counties.  We may limit shipping of certain varieties to the following states---  ID, OR, WA--- depending on their source and virus-free certification status. We cannot ship any stock to CANADA or outside the USA.

Note:  Planting a variety outside of its normal Hardiness Zone will void our normal replacement policy.  Please be careful in your selections!
