Dwarf Puget Gold Apricot Tree - Easiest growing apricot tree! (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall)
Puget Gold apricots are the the perfect combination of flavor, vigor, and resilience. This resilience is the quality which truly separates Puget Gold from other apricot varieties! Like all apricots, the Puget Gold tree is an exceptionally fast grower and young producer of fruit. Puget Gold also boasts an incredible flavor that rivals the best apricots such as Blenheim! There’s a lot to like about Puget Gold, but still the most attractive quality of this tree is that it will reliably produce fruit year after year!
As experienced growers will tell you, it can be quite difficult to reliably produce apricots every single year from the same tree. Apricot fruit itself is hardy and tough when established, the real problem with growing this fruit is that apricot trees tend to bloom too early in the spring. This early tendency exposes the tender apricot blossoms to the ever-changing and unpredictable spring weather! Hail, wind, and frost can easily damage these delicate blossoms, and rain can just as easily inhibit fruit growth by stopping insects from pollinating the flowers. Puget Gold trees were developed to deal with this problem by blooming later than other apricots and also by forming a dense branching structure that protects the flowers from harsh elements. With classic apricot flavor and the natural ability to protect its delicate blossoms, Puget Gold is the top apricot tree for regions with high rainfall and late spring seasons!
