Not prone to cracking, this fruiting beauty is one plant you will want in your backyard. The Apricot Fireball ™ will grow in most temperate areas of Australia and would be a welcome addition to anyone's fruit bowl over the hot summer months. The plant will grow up to 4m high and 3 m wide.
The Apricot Fireball is is partially self fertile, which means it will set small amounts of fruit without a pollinator - HOWEVER - it will benefit from cross pollination, which will result in more fruit setting on your plant.
Use another apricot or a plum to get the best cross pollination results.
