Golden Sweet Apricot
Early Harvest of Golden Fruit
Golden Sweet is an apricot variety that produces very sweet fruit. Plant one in a sunny location near a window or patio so you can enjoy not only the sights of the harvest, but the ornamental features of this exceptional tree.
Firm, and very sweet, this freestone variety of apricot will gift you with its harvest early in the season, so you won’t have to wait long to sample its delights. Late June/early July will find you with a sumptuous harvest of fruit that not only tastes delicious, but is also healthy. Rich in antioxidants and other health benefits, Golden Sweet apricots are an easy way to bring healthy, wholesome food direct from your garden to your family’s table.
Your Golden Sweet goes beyond producing superior fruit by also being ornamental. Pink-hued, white blossoms cover the tree in spring, a strong call to pollinators. The foliage has a romantic, heart-shaped appearance that’s glossy enough to shine in the summer sun’s rays. The golden skin of the fruit has a soft blush, a gorgeous accent against the vibrant, green leaves.
Golden Sweet Apricot will grow up to 15 feet in height with an equal spread. It has an upright form, medium growth rate and enjoys full sun exposure. Golden Sweet is self-fertile, but will do best when other apricot trees are nearby.
Apricots are so much fun to have in the yard. They’re not only pretty to look at, but provide a harvest of tiny fruits that make up for their size by having a robust flavor. Golden Sweet is an excellent example of an apricot tree that’s easy to enjoy…as I’m sure you will this summer.
