Tilton Apricot Tree
Versatile Apricot with Exceptional Flavor
Tilton Apricot is deciduous tree that bears excellent, late season fruit. Plant one in a sunny to partial shade location in your yard where you can enjoy its spring flowers and late harvest of sumptuous fruit.
Your Tilton Apricot has one of the earliest ripening fruits. Its elegant, heart-shaped fruit has a delightfully light, golden hue that’s kissed with a rosy blush.
Tilton has a unique appearance among apricots with its slightly flatter shape and “suture” line that goes halfway around the fruit. It is also prized for being one of the most flavorful of the apricots available today, with a sweet/tart flavor to its tender and juicy nature.
Tilton blooms very early and ripens late June to July, and is a leading variety for freezing and canning. It’s even amenable to drying so you can prepare these for enjoyment well after harvest.
Tilton Apricot will grow to 25 feet in height. It is a vigorous tree with a symmetrical shape and dense crown of green foliage.
Tilton’s spring bloom produces delicate pink flowers that are fragrant and a tempting lure to area pollinators. It bears a heavy crop late-summer and is resistant to late frosts. It’s self-pollinating so you don’t need a lot of space to enjoy this remarkable variety.
Whether you’re an apricot-lover, or just want to try growing something new, the Tilton Apricot is for you. Easy to grow, colorful and with fruit of exceptional quality, the Tilton Apricot is an outstanding choice for your yard today.
