Product Information

If you have always wanted to grow your own apricots, this is the perfect time to start! 'Early Moorpark' is self-fertile and will grow and thrive in UK conditions, cropping reliably year after year. It produces deliciously flavoured, aromatic, bright yellow fruits, which take on an attractive orange-red tinge when fully ripe and are ready to pick in August.

The fragrant, light-pink blossom appears in early spring before the leaves start growing, making a beautiful display. Whilst the tree itself is fully winter hardy, to guarantee a good crop of apricots, plant it in full sun but against a south-facing fence or wall and cover with fleece to give further frost protection when it is in full flower. The pollinating insects will then set to work and make lots of lovely fruits to pick later in the year.

Once fully established, you might expect to pick 200-300 fruits per tree! If you don't have room in your garden, 'Moorpark' will be perfect to grow in a pot on your patio or balcony.

Care Information

  • Plant in full sun or partial shade.
  • Although frost-tolerant, it is still best practice to protect the blossom with fleece when unusually cold weather is expected.
  • When fruit appears, it may need thinning. Remove poorly placed, small or misshapen fruits when they are about 1cm wide, aiming to have a fruit every 15cm (6in).
  • The best time to prune an apricot tree to keep its shape is annually in the spring. This variety does not require a pollinator.
