Dwarf apricot tree - Bare-rooted - TreePrunus armeniaca
Small fruit tree with large fruits
A graceful fruit tree. That's the dwarf apricot tree (Prunus armeniaca). Due to its small size, the dwarf apricot tree is perfectly suited to being planted in a pot. Of course, another possibility is to plant it out in the garden. The fruits of this small fruit tree are on the large side. And sweet and juicy to boot. We supply the dwarf apricot tree as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical. The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. Pruning is not necessary. The apricot tree grows in well-drained soil. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.Show more
