Blenheim Apricot Tree Pollination
Blenheim Apricot Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Blenheim Apricot Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun (6 to 8 hours of sun) and well-drained soil ensure your Blenheim Tree will thrive.
To plant, dig your hole shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width. After the hole is finished, loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can break through easily. Then, place your tree, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water about once weekly. However, if you get around an inch of rainfall every 10 days or so during the growing season, additional watering should be unnecessary.
If you’re not sure how much water the tree needs, check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down - if it's dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizer: If you’re planting during the fall season, wait until the spring to use fertilizer. With nutrient-rich soil, fertilizer is unnecessary until your tree begins bearing fruit. After fruiting starts, an application of high-nitrogen fertilizer is recommended.
4. Pruning: Prune each year during the dormant season. If you’re located in growing zones 6 or farther north, wait to prune your tree until the late winter. When you do prune, make sure you’re pruning in an 'open center' shape, which keeps the tree’s canopy open for light purposes.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Love my Blenheim Apricot Tree!
I purchased and planted this variety of Apricot 20 years ago. It was a bit slow to take off, seeming to produce a crop every other year. For the last 12 - 15 years he tree has given a consistent, full crop of lovely apricots. They are delicious! There is a nice hint of tartness after the initial sweetness huts you. Not sure what variety is being sold in Northern California supermarkets but it doesn't hold a can DC le to mine. What's more is the tree is really lovely. Probably my prettiest fruit tree out of 30 total. You might have to fight off a few squirrels but well worth it!!
Great Healthy Tree
Tree was nice and healthy but got a little damaged in shipment.....
Blenheim Apricot Tree
The tree is currently in its dormancy, but I’m sure will bud out in the Spring. Although about 3’ when shipped (in perfect condition), I will see if there is fruit this first year. This is the absolute BEST in apricots and seldom make it into commercial market. Can’t wait!
Just a stick right now
We love our new trees!
We ordered 6 trees in total. We bought 3 avocados, 1 peach, 1 ice cream banana tree, and this apricot tree. Everything was sent by Fed ex and was packed nicely. The plants looked good. The avocado trees had a few green leaves. The banana tree looked great, but however the peach and apricot tree had no leaves. They had little stubby parts growing from the branches. We have had them for about a week and the plants are all doing great. The apricot tree has little buds (flowers now) The peach tree hasn’t done anything yet. But it’s just now starting to warm up. I am hoping that the peach tree does good, but it is to be expected. As I said we have only had them a week and they are doing wonderfully.
