  • Also called a Japanese Apricot
Sometimes called a fruiting Japanese apricot, Shiro-Kaga is very ornamental with white, fragrant flowers and small fruits. While not a true apricot, it's similar to apricots and plums. In late January to early February, this showy tree bursts into bloom with single white flowers that have a spicy fragrance. Fruits follow in May. The up to 1-in. diameter fruits are primarily used for pickling or medicinal purposes. They're also used to make umeboshi, or fermented plums. Shiro-Kaga Apricot performs best in areas with mild winters. It requires 400 chilling hours below 45°F. For best fruit production, plant another fruiting Japanese apricot variety for cross pollination.
