I have a tree in my garden that is about 7 years old, that I planted from a stone of a fruit from Corfu. I was told that it was a mesapila .The fruit resemble and taste a bit like an apricot. I have been unable to find anything out about it and now that the tree is over 8 foot high would like to know if it will fruit at all. Has anybody any help ?



It possibly isan apricot, can't find anything about it. Probably not self fertile.

Thankyou for your response. I was wondering whether mesapila was the greek word for it and in english it is something else. But have never eaten a fruit like it , only slightly resembling a apricot in shape, size but not in taste. Anyway I shall continue to grow it, it is very hardy and is outside all year round and will see what comes of it.
