Fruit lovers go crazy for our Flavor Delight Aprium® (Prunus aprium 'Flavor Delight') a delightfully yummy dual cross between a plum and an apricot. Like its cousin, the Pluot®, the Sweet Flavor Delight Aprium® (Prunus aprium 'Flavor Delight') Tree gives you the best of two orchard flavors in one fruit.
Whereas the Pluot leans more toward the plum end of the flavor spectrum, the Aprium gives a bigger apricot punch along with the look and the texture of the apricot.
Growers love the fairly early harvest season of the Sweet Flavor Delight Aprium, with fruits coming on strong early in the season. Growers in all marginal apricot areas have found success with this cross, and once you get just a taste or two of the ripened end product, you'll see that they're worth the effort.
The zesty zip of the apricot is tempered down just a bit by the plum's sweetness, making for an interesting and addictive flavor combination that the whole family can love. In fact, some connoisseurs even say it is one of the most flavorful of all the early summer fruits.
If you're like many folks and space is an issue, then this semi-dwarf is right for you, since they're around three-fourths the size of standard apricot varieties. And because they are self-fruitful, they need no pollinators, so you can grow this tree on its own or alongside other fruits if desired.
It isn't all about the excitingly delicious taste with this aprium cross, though; you'll also appreciate the beautiful pink flowers and foliage it releases each spring, brightening up your landscape in a splendor-filled show that the whole neighborhood will love.
These trees are easy to grow, requiring minimal maintenance, making them a virtually carefree addition to your property. Plant them this season and you'll be enjoying your first harvest in as little as three years.
Make sure to order your trees early. The sweet Flavor Delight Aprium is always popular, so it doesn't stay in inventory long. And remember, the sooner you order the sooner you get to enjoy this supremely sweet fruit, which is ideal for snacking, adding to fruit platters and salads, or even making into jellies and jams.
