The Moorpark Apricot grows in zones 4-8.

This fruit tree is known for its juicy, sweet-tasting apricots that are good for fresh eating, canning or drying. Harvest time spans from early July to early August, but the fruit does not ripen all at once. Beyond bearing fruit, the tree is also considered an attractive landscape tree, with its spring bloom of whitish-pink flowers.

  • Produces large yellow apricots with a sweet taste — great for fresh eating, canning, and drying
  • Is self-fertile, but planting two varieties is recommended for a better crop
  • Blooms whitish-pink early in the season and yields ripe fruit from July to late August
  • Will be delivered at a height of 3'–4'
