Apricots are great not only because of their sweet flavor, but apricots are also loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin C & healthy antioxidants.

Now, you can grow your own healthy crop of delicious fruit every summer with the Moorpark Apricot tree.

The Moorpark explodes with fresh fruit every summer, giving you beautiful fragrant white flowers in the spring!

These fast growing trees require little or no maintenance, and they're tolerant of most soils and growing conditions.

That means you get tons of delicious, healthy apricots from July to late August... every year!

Moorpark apricots are larger than typical apricots. You'll be loaded with huge fruit every summer.

Apricots are self pollinating, which means that you can plant just one tree and you'll get fruit. However, we recommend planting a Moorpark with a Blenheim Apricot tree for cross-pollination... so you get even more fruit throughout the summer.

They're the perfect snack! Pick 'em right off the tree for a fresh treat... but they are also great canned or dried.

Moorpark Apricot trees mature to a height of just 15-20 ft. tall, so they easily fit in most yards. Perfect for growing zones 5-9.

I grew up with two Morepark Apricot trees in my backyard. These are the largest, sweetest, best flavored apricot you'll ever have the privilege of eating. The are perfect for jam, cobbler, canning, freezing, drying, and absolutely the best eaten while standing under the tree. Their only draw back is that they do not keep well after being picked -- not even in the refrigerator. This is why you'll never see them in the produce section of a grocery store. But don't let that stop you -- just don't pick them until you're ready to use them

my apricot trees bloom every year, but never produce any fruits
December 31, 2012
I was a bit disappointed when our 5-6 foot tree arrived. Please don't get me wrong, the tree did not arrive with any damage, however, I was surprised with the very thin branches and a very small trunk diameter. We ordered the 5-6 foot tree, so I assumed it would be a somewhat established tree

Excellent Apricot
My Moorpark Apricot proved to be very hardy, down to Zone 6. I put on a lot of growth this summer, so I am very pleased. No fruit this first year, but I anticipate next year will be fine.

Tree arrived in great condition. We transplanted it in early spring and it has taken off well, with lots of leaf growth during its first year on our property. We are very pleased with it so far. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I'd like to see if/how it produces fruit

New Apricot Tree
I ordered this tree and it was shipped quickly and well packed.
I planted it on Sunday, and it was blooming by Wednesday.
I don't expect fruit this year, but I sure am enjoying the blooms.
All trees ordered from FGT have been outstanding quality, great service. I won't purchase fruit from any other retailer. Thank you for great business practices.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Moorpark 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 Moorpark 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 Moorpark Apricot again after the transplant is complete.

I love apricots and I have moved to a house that did not have an apricot. I will get Apriocts when the tree grows as I do not have to compete with Deer, squirrel, birds, racoons and crows.

these are the best apricots you can eat'
marsha d on Sep 19, 2015
Apricot tree are beautiful when they flower and also when they bear fruit. Supposedly Moorpark Apricots grow and bear fruit in zone 9 which is where I live now. I am not sure if the tree will be successful but I feel it is worth a try.

cold tolerance?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Planted two Moorparks last spring, so no fruit yet. Survived a brutal winter with multiple snowfalls of several feet each, long stretches of sub-zero temps and strong winds. We live in the mountains of western Maryland at about 2400' altitude. Full leaves although I noticed no flowers this year possibly due to a mid-May frost.

I live in zone 10 in south Florida. Could I plant Moorpack Appricot Tree ?
Do I need to plant a second tree for pollinating ?
Thank you:
Jesus of Nokomis, Florida.
Jesus C on Nov 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I'm in zone 9 and you are not in zone 10, you are in zone 9B. My first Moorpark didn't make it but I had bought insurance and F-G-S quickly replaced it and this one is doing great. I think it's worth a shot! I don't know if you need 2 trees but they recommend getting a Beinhieim apricot as well. They don't have that tree on their site?????

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.
