Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree Pollination
Chinese Mormon Apricot Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Chinese Mormon Apricot Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sun) and well-drained soil ensure your 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos

I was a little skeptical when I ordered this tree. I initially bought another variety but it was killed by a hard frost. Fast growing trees was great and refunded me and I decided to take a chance on another variety. It arrived in good shape in early June and since then it has nearly doubled in size in clay soil, no less! I can't speak to how it will fruit but it's definitely healthy and growing faster than any almost anything in the yard. The fence in the background is a standard 4' so you can appreciate the scale. It's easily over 10' now.
A lovely, strong tree
