Tree Description Pale yellow with orange blush. Deep reddish-orange flesh, very juicy. Crops well, excellent flavour. Makes a good bushy tree. Best in Early August.
Comments Suggested by RP & CS. The apricot was the first tree in the Orchard to produce a crop large enough to harvest. CS made six small tarts with the fruit, they had a beautiful flavour.

See photos of the tarts in the Fruit & Food section of the Photos.
