Eat them fresh, use them for baking, or dry them for lovely holiday gifts. The 'Blenheim' is quite adaptable to most soil types, undemanding and self-fertile. Apricots, with such a sweet flavor, are a very popular fresh fruit in any household.

They're loaded with Vitamins A and C that are essential to healthy eating. Imagine being able to harvest this delicious, juicy fruit in your own yard! Nothing beats that 'fresh off the tree' flavor.

The tree is compact in size, allowing it to be grown in any yard without taking up to much valuable space. The rounded form of bright green foliage and an early bloom period makes it a refreshing showpiece for your landscape!

With so many valuable uses, ordering one for your yard today will allow you to take advantage of the benefits offered as soon as possible. Apricot trees are easy to grow and quite adaptable to most soil types.

Blenheims are wonderful if....you can get them to set fruit. Where your springs are cool to cold, possibly wet, or windy your chances of getting fruit on this tree are one in ten. Go for a tree that flowers in May or June if you live above 4500 ft. elevation and have these conditions. Otherwise these trees grow great!! Put them on a drip system, keep them pruned properly and they will grow with little problems. I have mine on a south facing hillside, in an orchard, in clay soil and it's hot and dry here in the summer. But the Blenheim just grows and grows.

Very fast service and beautiful plant
I bought this tree in spring of 2015 and planted in front yard where it gets full sun. It did not grow for about two months after planting but now it is doing very well. Package arrived on time as stated but I made a mistake of waiting for about five days before planting it which may explain the no growth for first two months.

Planted during the drought....
Planted during the California drought. Lost a few branches traveling here, but one year later, they are growing really well and there are fruit on them. Maybe a dozen all told. These were some of the few things that got water in our barren moonscape of a yard, but it sure paid off! It may be a few years until I have enough fruit to make jam, but I will enjoy what I get!?? I'll post again in July, when they are ripe enough to taste.....

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Blenheim Apricot



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Blenheim Apricot.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Blenheim Apricot gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Blenheim Apricot again after the transplant is complete.

Allene L on Oct 13, 2015
Best Answer: My Blenheim Apricot is growing well but it is too soon for me to have any fruit as yet. So on the 'fruit' part I have no information. The Moorepark Apricot did not grow, nor did the replacement that I got this Spring.

how soon after the initial planting does it produce fruit?
Jeffrey on Jul 7, 2015
Best Answer: I just planted it a few months ago, but I understand since the grafted rootstock is a mature tree, it should take less than the 5-7 years it takes for a younger tree. I am hoping for 2 years!

I live in Grand Junction, Colorado. Is there a problem of blossoms freezing in the spring, causing loss of a crop with Blenheims? (We don't plant tomatoes until after May 15).
Hubert Sturges on Jul 6, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Hubert: I'm a California native. Blenheims have been grown in this part of Central California since the 1930's. I cannot tell you from personal experience, as our trees flower in April after the last frost. But yes, you are likely to loose fruit if the flowers freeze. I have heard of people successfully riding out a frost by using the heat of 5 watt christmas tree lights strung in the trees. There are also a few Blenheim varieties that are advertised as a Canadian White Blenheim that is supposed to be more frost resistant. Good luck! They are delicious.

I've a Blenheim that I've grown from a pit. It stands over 12 feet tall now, but has only produced 1 apricot. Any thoughts on pruning and encouraging fruit?
kroset on Jul 3, 2015
Best Answer: I bought 5' trees, in pots. So far they have fruited, but since they are so new the fruit didn't stay on. From
what I have read, Miracle Grow for fruit trees is the most recommended, applied per the instructions.
And on the internet type in "pruning blenheim apricot trees" . It's important the main trunk is as large as
possible, to support the branches. I have pruned my trees back, to keep the branches from being leggy.
But we've had alot more rain than usual, and all my fruit trees are growing exceptionally well, so all of
them have had to be pruned back. But the internet will give the best answers for pruning and fruiting,
I didn't realize a blenheim could be grown from seed. That means if I want to grow more trees I don't
have to purchase them from a nursery. Really, just persevere and eventually all the information you
need will be found on the internet.

I live in the SF Bay Area, can I still grow this apricot tree?
Tammy H on Jul 8, 2015
Best Answer: Bleheims thrive in the Bay Area. I had 2 50 year old giant apricots in the back yard. We lost them because of the drought. When we had that last major downpour, they toppled. The roots spread and prefer to be near a structure (to keep them cool in the hot weather). In May we bought 2 replacements from this site. It took them about 2 weeks to get here, but the are in new giant holes, filled with organic potting soil and covered by mulch. They are some of the few things we water (drought). They have shot up, and have leaves on all the branches. I don't know how many years until I get fruit, but I am looking forward to making apricot jam again.... backyard Blenheims are the way to go. The fruit is so delicious, but once there ripe, they don't keep. That's why you don't see them often in stores. They make great pies, and the jam is blue ribbon quality. They are a treasure! Have no fear dear, plant away! Bay Area weather (normal weather) is perfect for Blenheims. Sign me as Liz, Vallejo

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
