Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

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

Description

Prunus armeniaca 'katy'

Large, all-purpose, flavorful freestone. Katy contains a lot of sugar, so it's delicious fresh and a great candidate for drying. Katy Apricot will be one variety worth considering if you live in an area with mild winters because it only needs 200 - 300 chill hours and is self fertile. This variety is a relatively early bloomer. Dependably set heavy crops year after year. Enjoy this all-purpose, flavorful sub-acid apricot fresh, or for cooking, canning, drying, freezing and jams and jellies.
