Perfect Pollinator for Sugar Pearls

We spent years looking for the best match to our favorite apricot, Sugar Pearls, so you can imagine our elation when we discovered this scrumptious variety was the perfect pollinator! Sweetly aromatic, richly flavorful and juicy, this new apricot /nectarine cross has its own attributes. Very late bloom time avoids damaging late frost which leads to heavy yields of crack-free fruit. Delectable nectacots have ambrosial, deep orange flesh and red-blushed skin, ripening to perfection in July. Zones 4-7. PPAF.

Zones: 4 - 7 (-20 F.).
Height: Standard is 15 - 20 feet; semi-dwarf is 10 - 12 feet.
Shade Requirement: Needs full sun for maximum flower and fruit production.
