Prunus armeniaca 'Moorpark'
Prunus armeniaca 'Moorpark' is the most reliable apricot variety, producing large round fruit in August. Like Prunus dulcis, it is a very ornamental tree with beautiful blossom, flowering unusually early and beloved of honey bees. Apricots were recorded in Britain in the 16th century, and were probably grown here much earlier. "Moorpark" was probably named as a compliment to Lord Anson, who owned the house of that name near Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire and cultivated the tree. Self fertile. We provide Prunus armeniaca 'Moorpark' on St. Julian A rootstock, which will give you a nice sized garden tree.
