The Goldbar apricot produces very large, light yellow-orange fruit with reddish blush. The fruit is round to oval with slightly compressed sides and is very large. The skin is light-orange and slightly glossy. A reddish blush covers up to 30% of the side that is exposed to the sun. The flesh is light orange, very firm, meaty and moderately juicy. Some acidity is associated with the skin.
Quality for the fresh market is good. The pit is large and freestone. Goldbar is not suitable for canning. It is a vigorous tree that flowers heavily but sets light crop, which increases fruit size.
