Apricot trees

AprikosenbaumApricot trees bring a southern flair, even a touch of exoticism, into your garden.  The full apricot aroma, which you can only discover when you pick the apricot fruits direct from your own apricot tree, has something special that has already been lost in the fruits at the supermarket. Perhaps because of this exotic fruit aroma, apricots have always been regarded as aphrodisiacs; in China they stand for feminine beauty and fertility. "Marille" fruits are also characterised by this almost indescribable but beautiful aroma. Therefore there are plenty of good reasons to select and plant the right variety of apricot trees for your garden from our large assortment in the Lubera online garden shop; next year the harvest and enjoyment can commence!
 

The Best Apricot Varieties

In the Lubera garden shop you will find a rich selection of apricots. The botanical name is Prunus armeniacus and refers to the presumed origin in Central Asia, in Armenia. Originally, apricots came from China and Tibet. The varieties Kioto and Harlayne bloom so richly that they can still bring a good harvest even in the years that have spring frost. The apricot varieties Bergeron, Goldrich and Orangered have large fruits that bring a new fruity and juicy apricot quality, which you can enjoy, as I said, in the best way, if grown in your own garden. The apricot Luizet is an ancient historical variety that was originally cultivated primarily in the Swiss valleys and has a particularly pleasant aroma and fragrance. Finally, our compact apricot variety grows 50% the size of normal apricot varieties; it produces small but highly aromatic fruit, which fits into every child's hand and is aptly named Little Bobby.

Guide For Growing Apricot Trees

Apricot trees are advantageously planted on a western or southern wall, as this leads to a drier and milder climate that favours the southern apricot fruits; and, at the same time, there is no danger, as in the case of a south-facing wall, that the sprouting and flowering will take place too early, thus increasing the risk of frost.

Pruning apricot trees should taking place during the vegetation period, just after the harvest; an incision during the winter leaves open wounds, into which fungi and bacteria can easily penetrate.  If pruned in the summer, these will immediately close and be protected by the actively growing apricot plant.

Espalier Apricot Trees

Apricot trees are often used as an espalier against walls. In this case, however, the training should not be carried out horizontally, but at an angle of 30° to the horizontal only, so there is the right balance between growth and fertility.  If you use this method, which is also called fanning, the plant will remain full of vitality and it will be healthy longer and above all, there is less danger of the lowest branches becoming too old.
