Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Golden Sweet Apricot Tree is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.


Prunus armeniaca

One of the first apricots of the season. The fruit is medium-sized and turns golden orange when ripe. It has a firm texture and a mild sweet flavor. Perfectly named, this apricot is gorgeously golden in color and lusciously sweet in flavor. While the Golden Sweet is self-fertile, you'll still want to plant it near another variety to ensure you get the largest crop possible. Golden Sweet apricots are used for baking and canning but they are especially good for drying. A nice addition to a backyard orchard.

Planting & Care

Apricots are adaptable to most soil types, but do best in fast-draining, loamy soils. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Most fruit trees are pruned during their dormant phase in Winter, but apricots do best when pruned in Summer. Pruning should be done in July and August after harvest. Apricot trees explode with fragrant white blossoms in early Spring and grow quickly so they are attractive in landscaping. The trees can live for up to 75 years.
