Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

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

Aptly named, the intensely sweet, white flesh of this dessert-quality apricot is a knockout. You can expect a good harvest in moderate climates.

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.
