Moorpark Apricot

Loaded with Juicy Apricots


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

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.

Apricots are packed with carotenoids, which are healthy antioxidants that help prevent heart disease, reduce "bad cholesterol" levels and protect against cancer. Every fresh apricot you snack on is a step towards a healthier lifestyle.

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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

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.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Moorpark Apricot can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

I got my Moonpark Apricot tree very soon after my order,what a surprise.I have got trees from others ,not even close to this tree.It realy looked like a growing tree,VERY well packed and wasnt a little stick like the others.I wish I had found FGT.long ago. I will buy from them from now on,and all my friends will also.

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.

my apricot trees bloom every year, but never produce any fruits .

By: Rebeka
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.

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.

Best Answer: This is a self-pollinating tree...I have only had it for one year, but thus far, I have been happy with it.
