Prunus armeniaca 'Sungold' | Apricot

This apricot is an early blooming tree, its flowers emerging even before leaves appear. Because flowers appear early in the spring season, they sometimes suffer from frost damage, reducing or eliminating fruit. Be aware it can be frustrating and challenging to grow them successfully. Many different fruiting selections available; check locally. 'Sungold' shown in photos. Canopy coverage: 79 square feet.
