The Tomcot Apricot is a very consistent and productive apricot variety. The large, orange fruit is firm and the flesh is sweet. The Tomcat Apricot will be ready for harvest, 2-3 weeks before Wenatchee Moorpark and 4 days before Goldstrike and Goldbar.
This fruit tree is partly self-fruitful but they will produce larger crops if cross-pollinated by another apricot. The fruit ripens in early July, 2.5 weeks before Wenatchee and 4 days before Goldstrike and Goldbar. The skin is a light-orange color and slightly glossy. A trace of blush develops on the side that is exposed to the sun. The pit is medium-large and free from the flesh.
