The Wenatchee Apricot bears large size fruit. This apricot may also be called Moorpark.
The fruit and skin is a light yellow. The Wenatchee is known for being a good annual producer. It is also known to be a great pollinator for late blooming apricots!
The fruit is flavorful and is widely used for drying and home canning. It is a self-pollinating tree.
The Wenatchee blooms very early so it is sometimes difficult in late frost areas. It produces best in well drained and moderately fertile soil.
This tree is heavy producer so you may have to thin the fruit early in season for size and quality. Wenatchee produces best in well-drained and fertile soils with a pH of 5.5 to 7.5.
The flowers are white and fragrant! This tree can be a beautiful center piece in a landscape with the abundant spring flowers and the attractive foliage.
An ornamental plant with the apricot fruit as a bonus!
