Sugar Pearls™ Reachables® Apricot Tree

Heavenly Tasting Stone Fruit

After tasting Sugar Pearls, we were at a loss for words to describe the full-bodied, sweet golden-honey flavor of this incredible white apricot. It's totally unlike any apricot (or any other fruit for that matter) you've ever tasted, bursting with sun-sweetened nectar. Can bear as quickly as a year after planting and blooms much later than all other apricot varieties—so even if you were too far north to grow apricots before—now's your chance! Plant with Honey Pearls Nectacot to ensure pollination. Ripens late June to early July. Zones 4-7. PP18639.

Now available in Reachables™ size! Sugar Pearls™ Reachables™ Nectarine Tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. It's also easier to manage than full-sized trees. One person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables™ require a tree support.

Easy to Plant! The fully leafed-out Reachables™ tree ships with a bamboo stake that provides temporary support until replaced with a sturdy tree support. The tree is potted in an Ellepot. Made of biodegradable paper, Ellepots can be planted directly into the ground.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
