Mother's Apricot Tree


Mother's Apricot Tree

This apricot has produced soooo much fruit. The family has been canning for weeks. I tried one off the tree, at 100F that fruit was unexpectedly hotter than my mouth! Live fruit off the tree at that temp, it was earth shattering! :-)

Thank you. I'm glad you like the fruit tree. This is already well picked too. Already five big bushells removed and frozen. The back garden mother has almond, pecan and pomegranite. Fruit loves the dry and mild condition in Utah. We used to go to the northern belt for cherries, peaches and necterines. I'll post where I grew up in Idaho, the remnants of our apple and cherry orchard can still be seen, though obviously not much cared for after we had moved away.

They are young still Amy, but with 9 months of growing season every year, that will change pretty fast. Very exotic to me. :-)

This is what I love about East of the Mt.s GT...the fresh fruit is so amazing! I would love to be able to grow peaches and apricots! I love all of your photo's from your mother's garden..I can see where you and your sister got your Very Greenthumbs from! :)

Thanks Cat. I am always amazed at the fruit through out Utah. And the roses, it's like you can't stop them were you to try. Many a day I dreaded weeding our three veg gardens, and now there is nothing I wouldn't give to be back in those old gardens of mother's design. :-) She did engender a delight in cultivation. I'm glad to see she can enjoy it now for recreation.
