The Apricot, Early Golden, Prunus armeniaca, is an early apricot with large smooth, orange-gold skin, orange flesh, and is a freestone. It has attractive leaves, and pink or white flowers in the spring. The Early Golden Apricot grows in sandy, well drained soils and is not drought tolerant. This large golden apricot is especially suited to the south and good for eating fresh, baking, canning or drying.

Early Golden is a fast growing tree and is self fertile, but produces best with two varieties. Fruit trees need a minimum of 6-8 hours of sunlight daily, and regular watering. Apricots are rich in Vitamin A, B and C, Calcium, Copper, Iron, and Phosphorus, so are a very healthy food.
