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.

No Chemicals

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant 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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
