Apricot Kioto (Elaine )

Is this a compac variety and suitable for growing in a container? How big does it get?

Feb 8, 2019

Apricot Kioto (Lubera)

Kioto is a apricot with normal growth. So for containers not the best choice. I would take Apricompakta for container growing.

Diseases (R Marchant)

What diseases is this susceptible to? I had an apricot some years ago that had leaf wilt every year. Also, is it suitable for the Central Scotland climate?
