Prunus x ‘DurGarfield’
A hardy apricot that produces meaty and smooth tasting fruit, which is great for eating fresh or jams and jellies. Fruit is golden yellow and ripens in August. Produce more reliably when pollinated by other apricots or Nanking Cherry. Due to their early bloom time, apricot blossoms are susceptible to spring frost damage. Planting apricot trees in a site with limited afternoon heating (e.g. east side of an evergreen shelterbelt) will postpone flowering and increase the probability of fruit set.
