General information

The apricot tree belongs to the Rosacea family also known as Prunoideae & Prunus genus. It is a medium size tree and generally grows 5-7 metres high with heart shaped thin, smooth leaves and pinkish white flowers. The fruits are egg-shaped with various skin colours according to the variety, from clear yellow to intense orange and with a tender juicy pulp. The apricot tree prefers a temperate climate but it is also common and cultivated in colder areas. The tree is sensitive to strong winds and as it is early flowering, a subsequent freeze can cause major damage to the flower and fruit production.
