Description

Prunus armeniaca ‘Pioneer’

Chinese Apricot Tree is a hardy, deciduous tree that produces delicious, early fruit.  In the spring, pink-hued, white flowers will appear across the tree’s branches.  After spring, oval green leaves cling to your Chinese Apricot’s branchlets by colorful, reddish stems through the warm months.  As the season progresses, the flowers give way to spherical, pitted fruit.  The fruit of the Chinese Apricot is  freestone, making it easy to use in canning, drying, or in baked goods.  It blooms very early and is also one of the earliest ripening fruits.  Chinese Apricot is typically sold in semi-dwarf size, growing up to 15 feet in height and 15 feet wide.  This is a hearty tree which is adaptable to many soil types, disease and pest resistant, and visually pleasing.  This tree can be trimmed back as needed (much like a peach tree) to fit smaller spaces.

It doesn’t require a pollinator, so you can plant one and still get fruit!
