Gold Kist Apricot

Apricot - Gold Kist, Prunus armeniaca 'Gold Kist', is one of the earliest ripening fruits. Blooms very early; generally difficult to grow, especially in late frost areas. Needs well-drained, moderately fertile soil.


It is best to thin fruit early in season to maximize size and quality. Gold Kist produces large fruit with firm, orange freestone flesh and superb flavor. Their generally freestone quality makes them easy to prepare for canning, drying, or use in baked goods. For canning, use fruits that are firm; use fully ripe fruits for fresh eating or drying It is considered "the best backyard apricot for warm winter climate.


Apricot trees, once established, are somewhat drought-tolerant. The trees are gorgeous in spring with white or pink blossoms, and ornamental in summer with their furrowed bark and heart-shaped, glossy leaves, red when new and dark green when mature.


Apricots contain carotenoids which are antioxidants that help prevent heart disease, reduce "bad cholesterol" levels, and protect against cancer.
