Debbie’s Gold Apricot
Prunus x ‘Debbie’s Gold’
Produces freestone, orange-yellow fruit that are slightly sweeter than Westcot. Excellent for eating fresh or canning. Blooms several days later than other cultivars. 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.
