Large Sweet Fruit
Our Moorpark Apricot Trees produce the largest, sweetest apricots you'll ever taste. You won't find them in the grocery store, so enjoy your large bounty of sweet fruit and be sure to share with your friends and family.  If you enjoy baking cobblers or making jam, this is the best choice.  Can, dry or freeze to enjoy them all year - and feel good about snacking on a delicious treat that is loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin C & healthy antioxidants.

Your tree will produce fruit from July to late August, but you don't have to wait until then to benefit from the Moorpark Apricot. We've groomed and nurtured this tree so that when it arrives, it will be ready to perform the first spring. 

Beautiful Flowering Tree
Every spring you can expect your tree to provide an amazing display of small white flowers.  It will fill your landscape with a sweet aroma that you'll look forward to each season. 

Easy to Grow and Maintain
These fast-growing trees require little to no maintenance, They're tolerant of most soils and growing conditions.

The Moorpark Apricot Tree is self-pollinating, which means that you can plant just one tree to 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.

Your tree will mature to a height of just 15-20 ft. tall, so they easily fit in most yards. Best suited for growing zones 5-9.

Order Now
We carefully pack our trees to arrive in great condition and ready to thrive.  Order now to enjoy your tree the first spring.  





Moorpark Apricot Pollination

Moorpark Apricot are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Moorpark Apricot will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Delivery disappointment
I was a little disappointed in how long it took to receive the plant. I've only had it a week or so. There were quite a few holes in the leaves. The delivery service stood it on end, when it specifically said lay flat. When they stood it on end, they stood it upside down so all the dirt came out. It seems to be holding its own though.

Still in shock!?!
My Moorpark came well packaged with no damage. It had several limbs but no leaves when it arrived. In fact, there haven't been any indications that the tree is alive except there is a waxy coating to the branch ends and the last 6 inches of the branch are a beautiful deep brown. I am thinking it is still in shock and that we will not see anything until next spring?

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.

Received an excellent Moorpark Apricot
This tree arrived quickly, looks healthy, and is much taller than I expected. It had probably been dropped at some point during the shipping and the post was cracked its entire height. Luckily, I had a slightly larger empty one on hand and placed it in that one. I placed the tree in the shade, as instructed, for one week. Today, I moved it into morning sun and it seems to be doing very well. I am happy with my purchase and the service provided by Fast-Growing-Trees.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

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.
when should I plant apricot trees in zone 7?
carol h on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Always best when tree is dormant.
pollinator??
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
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.
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?????
I live in Michigan how does this tree tolerate the cold weather ( moorpark)?
Sharon Y on Mar 20, 2018

What type of soil is best? What Ph?
Wendy A on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: our soil here in elko, nv is very alkaline but this tree is doing ok. haven't had any fruit yet but that is more due to weather than soil.
Can this grow in zone 8?
Shawn L on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine are doing very well in zone 7. There should be no problem with growing them in zone 8.

Chris
Are you supposed to prune this tree? If so when ?
Susan S on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’s best to prune your apricot tree in the late winter or early spring. Remove any damaged, broken or crisscrossing branches. Also remove any branches that are rubbing together. This will prevent them from breaking on their own, and have unclean breaks. Use a sharp pair of loppers or pruners that are sterile to make your cuts. Cut the branches at 45 degree angles facing upwards to promote new growth. To shape your tree cut long branches back to about a third of their size. Removing branches towards the center to allow more sunlight and circulation to flow through. Sunlight and fresh air prevents molds and mildews from growing on the branches.
I have a balcony which is 7 ft wide, 11 ft long and 9-10 ft in height. I want fruit plants which can be planted in plotters/raise beds or what have you to suit to balcony area. Will this plant fit in there? If not do you have any other fruit suggestions [ California Bay area Zone 9]. One Bacony is facing west. Another is facing North. The north one doesn't get any sun.
Simran S on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Simran

what do u mean when u say rootstock.?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our trees are grafted, meaning they're cut from a larger more mature healthy tree. The root stock refers to the roots that the grafted tree came from.
