Product Description
A taste sensation if ever there was one, Sugar Pearls Apricots have a rich, golden-honey flavor and smooth, white flesh. These juicy, delicious fruits can often be enjoyed in the very first year after planting your tree. Sugar Pearls blooms much later than other apricots, so it is unaffected by late frosts that can damage the tree and hinder yields. A good option for Northern gardeners that have previously been unable to enjoy homegrown apricots. Plus, if you choose a Reachables size, you'll get full-sized fruits on a smaller tree that is ideal for containers or small spaces. No ladders needed to harvest these tasty apricots. Pollinate with Honey Pearls Nectacot for best results. Zones 4-7. PP18639

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
