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.
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.
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.
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.
