There are very few outcomes from gardening as satisfying as that first bite of a freshly-picked piece of fruit that you have grown yourself!
That dream is now easily achievable, even if you are slightly short on garden space, thanks to the outstanding Apricot 'Aprigold' Patio Tree. This compact variety really behaves itself in the garden, staying less than 1.2m tall across 10 years or so.
'Aprigold' makes the ideal potted fruit tree for the patio, balcony, or even planted straight into the garden.
Lovely soft-pink blossom emerges early in the year, transforming this tree into a springtime feature. As new leaves grow, they boast a lovely orange-red tinge, classic of apricots. Apricots are early fruiters, and will be fully established in a year or two, providing good crops of tasty, juicy apricots from late July into August every year.
As 'Aprigold' is self-fertile, a second variety is not needed to be planted nearby for pollination.
Supplied as a dormant bare root tree, double grafted, around 80cm tall.
Save even more space in your garden by growing your apricot as an espalier on a south facing wall or fence.
