Gorgeous creamy-yellow skinned fruit, the Canadian White Blenheim Apricot Tree (Prunus armeniaca 'Canadian White Blenheim') has been called one of the best-tasting Apricots around! Winning awards year after year, it becomes covered in small rounded fruits that are syrupy sweet!
White Apricot Trees are highly productive and resistant to Plum Pox virus, so they’re highly rated for home orchards! They’re also gorgeous flowering landscape ornamentals with their drifts of frilly pink blossoms that are delightfully fragrant! Soon the fruit develops and looks like glowing golden gems among the glossy green leaves!
Pollinator-friendly, be sure to plant Canadian White Apricot with a pollinator partner, so plant another late-blooming variety close by for a larger crop per tree. Also known in China where it originates, as the Dabaixing Apricot, these are unique specialty crops. Perfect for fresh eating, freezing, dried or made into preserves!
With a smaller than average mature height and width, these are ideal for home orchards and landscapes, where these ornamental trees provide great shade and specimen accents! The drifts of pink blossoms and glowing golden orbs, make them fantastic front yard trees that we’re sure everyone will slow down to have a look at least twice a year!
Blenheim Apricot Tree does need a pollinator so plant this and another tree in groups for shade and privacy, or in hedgerows of other fruit trees, and of course in your very own orchard! Prune smaller to accommodate smaller yards or tuck into existing landscapes.
Apricot trees and other fruit need at least 6 hours of full sun per day for the most flowers and fruit. Provide a location that has good air circulation and well-drained enriched soil. Fruit trees need moderate, yet consistent moisture during the growing season as well. Otherwise, you’ll enjoy a low-maintenance tree!
Canadian White Blenheim Apricot Tree is a unique gem of a fruit tree we’re sure no one else on the block has, but everyone will want a sample! Order yours at NatureHills.com to find this and other specialty fruit trees and more today!
