If you like sweet Apricots (and who doesn't?), you'll want to add the showy White Knockout Apricot tree (Prunus armeniaca 'White Knockout') to your landscape.The white-fleshed fruit is sweet and so pretty.

Let these become your early season apricots to sweetly kick off the harvest. Pale yellow, spherical fruit (sometimes called "blonde") features a pronounced rose-pink blush and well-defined suture line.

White Knockout is both rich in fruit sugar and sub-acid. It simply tastes deliciously sweet. Even picky kids will relish these dessert-quality fruits!

Maybe you've tried the super popular white peach? Well, just wait until you've savored homegrown white apricots, tree-ripe and warm from the sun!

With their mild acidity and high natural sugar content, they taste like healthy candy. The skin is smooth and the texture is firm.

You'll enjoy a productive harvest from White Knockout Apricot tree. You know...plant breeders do choose the names they give their plants for a reason!

With this tree, you'll get a "one-two" punch of outstanding, flavorful fruit and an attractive landscape tree, as well.

Clouds of fragrant, white blooms cover the rounded canopy in spring. This showy display is worthy of a prime spot in your garden design.

All across the country, people are starting to understand how beautiful fruit-bearing plants are. Join the huge "Edible Landscape" movement with a tree that will delight your whole family.

White Knockout Apricot is self-pollinating, so you'll get a crop with just one tree. However, we do recommend that you add another variety. You'll be amazed how much more productive Apricots will be with a pollination partner.

Pair it with another white-fleshed variety like Canadian White Blenheim. Depending where you live, you'll love adding sweet-tart, flavorful orange-fleshed Apricot varieties like Puget Gold, Chinese Apricot or Royal Rosa to your landscape, too.

All of our stone fruiting trees sell out quickly. Experienced Apricot growers are very excited about this variety and are on the hunt for it.

How to Use White Knockout Apricot Tree in the Landscape

Harvest them when you see the skin is a uniform light yellow and the fruit has started to soften up to the touch. Let it ripen on the tree for best results.

Snack to your heart's delight, a ripe White Knockout is going to be hard to resist. If you have a harvest to spare afterwards, store them in the refrigerator and plan to prep them quickly.

Dry them, slice and freeze them, bake them into cakes or prepare them as leather. Use a very light hand when adding extra sugar. You may not even need any with this special variety!

With naturally high fruit sugar levels, White Knockout can be used for preserves and canning. You'll taste summer sunshine with every bite.

Experiment with amazing meat sauces for ham, duck, chicken and pork loin. Dice and add them to fresh or dried with roasted pistachio nuts in rice pilaf. Slice, brush with oil and roast them on the grill for a minute or two on each side. Have you ever had apricot salsa? You really should!

Add White Knockout to a standard size backyard orchard, planting 20 feet away from its neighbor. Or, keep your trees under 8 feet tall and wide with an annual summer tip pruning for size control.

Use them as an "Edible Ornamental" in the front yard. Go ahead and make the neighbors talk! Plant one at the corner of your foundation planting.

Create a useful privacy screen behind your patio seating. They can also be grown along your property line as a hedgerow. Start a sensation with the snowy white, fragrant flowers and pale, golden fruit.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Situate your fruiting trees in full sun, where they'll bask in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Well-drained soil and good air circulation is also an important consideration for best results.

Provide a medium amount of water on a regular basis, especially during fruit development. Mulch helps keep the root system nice and cool.

Prune in late fall to sculpt your tree. Remove branches growing into the interior of the canopy. Maintain a goblet-shape. Develop horizontal or 45-degree angled scaffolding branches that hold up the heavy fruit.

You'll love the fabulous taste of your White Knockout harvest. Order from the expert growers at Nature Hills today!
