Sugar Pearls™ Apricot

The Most Heavenly Tasting Stone Fruit You Can Grow!

  • White apricot with sweet, golden-honey flavor
  • Can bear fruit as soon as one year after planting
  • Ideal for Northern gardeners
  • Fruits ripen in late June or early July
  • Blooms later-less chance of frost damage
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. Totally unlike any apricot (or any other fruit for that matter) you've ever tasted, bursting with sun-sweetened nectar. It's just too good to pass up! 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.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
