NEW - DWARF Apricots
Three new Dwarf Apricot varieties have been welcomed into the PlantNet® suite under the banner of the Backyard Beauties® Range.
- Bulida - Bulida is a well known and popular Apricot that produces large golden orange fruit in early to mid December, just in time for Christmas. The fruit is frim and very sweet and juicy. Medium chill makes it a variety that can be grown in most temperate regions of Australia.
- Moorpark - Is one of the best Apricots Around! The fruit is a nice oval shape with a deep orange colour. It matures around early January which makes it a mid to late season variety. It is a very versatile variety which can be used for stewing, making jams, cooking and not to mention it is a craker for making dried Apricots just like Nanna used to do! See stockists for Moorpark as this Apricot is not available online in 2013
- Trevatt - Trevatt is a large, round pale skinned Apricot with a red tinge to its skin. the flesh is an orange colour. It crops late December to early January and is a naturally heavy cropper, so thinning is recommended. It is low to medium chill which makes it a variety that can grow in most temperate regions of Australia.
All varieties grow to a height of 1.5m-2.0m and a width of 1.5m-2.0m.
The DWARF Apricots are self fertile and prolific bearers which means they will require staking. Plant them in a tub or a large pot for easy gardening - not to mention that the kids will love them!
