Apricot Early Moorpark fruit trees - By far the most well know variety. The orange flesh of this round variety has a very good flavour and renowned for its reliability. The fruits on Early Moorpark are large and the picking time is late July. Early Moorpark is a self fertile Apricot but like all other Apricots they do flower very early so hand pollinate the flowers with a soft brush to aid the pollination. Protection from frosts when in blossom is essential.

Early Moorpark Apricot Growing Tips.
Alongside the many similarities there are several important differences between Apricots and Peaches. Bacterial canker and silver leaf are not serious threats, so pruning is safe in late winter or early spring. The blossom is self fertile so a partner is not required, although the earliness of the flowering season means that hand pollination is recommended.

How to plant my apricot tree - Our How To Growing Tips section on our website has a video that will show you how.
What other apricot varieties will cross pollinate Early Moorpark - All Apricots are self fertile but they do flower very early and may require hand pollination. This is done by brushing from flower to flower with a soft brush.
When is the best time to plant a apricot fruit tree - Container grown trees can be planted at any time of the year. Bare Root apricot trees can only be planted between the months of November - April.
Planting distance for apricot trees - All fruit trees are grafted onto a rootstock. It is the rootstock that determines how big the apricot tree will grow into. There is a rootstock guide on the left hand side of all fruit tree product pages that explains this. As tall as the tree will grow into would be the planting distance. Example Montclare will grow to 3 metres when mature. So a spacing of between 3 metres would be required.
Can I grow a apricot tree in a pot - All fruit trees will be happy growing in a large container. A pot around 50-60cm is ideal. There is more information on growing fruit trees in containers in our FAQ page.
