CHINESE MORMON APRICOT TREE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OUT IN THE COLD

Here's why:

  • Most Cold and Frost hardy variety available
  • Sweet, juicy apricots with edible pit
  • Heavy producer of large sized fruit
  • Resistant to Japanese Beetles and other pests

An Apricot Tree for all Seasons

When the weather gets cold, you may have to turn up the heat, but you won't have to worry about your Chinese Mormon Apricot. This tree is tough. It not only resists cold temperatures, it's a frost hardy variety that will shrug off sub-freezing temperatures and deliver stellar yields of amazing apricots when the time is right. Not only that, the Japanese Beetle and other common pests are no match for this stalwart specimen.

Awash in dainty, pinkish-white blooms, the upright growth of the long branches is only weighed down by the multitude of apricots that lines each limb. The fruit's flaming orange presence adds color to the backdrop of tear shaped green leaves that flood the tree. With strength, character and beauty, the Chinese Mormon is a 'must have' for that special place you've reserved in your garden or landscape.

So Many Apricots, so Little Time

Most apricot enthusiasts will agree: There's no such thing as too many apricots-especially when they're this good. This Chinese Mormon is such a reliable, abundant producer, it could feed an army. Before you even taste it, you'll notice this variety actually looks delicious. It's bright, light orange skin glistens in the sun. It's soft, round body fits perfectly between the thumb and forefinger. When you slice one open, be sure to have a napkin on hand. Its sweet juices will begin to drip from the moment you open it.

The Chinese Mormon makes great homemade jams, fruit salads, pies and is wonderful for dehydrating and eating on the go. But for our money, the best way to enjoy this incredible fruit is straight off the tree. The Chinese Mormon Apricot is in short supply.

Don't let this opportunity get away. Order your Chinese Mormon now.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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 Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree 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 Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree again after the transplant is complete.

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.
