In areas with wide temperature swings between days and nights, many apricot varieties seem to be susceptible to dropping blossoms before being pollinated. Planting less sensitive varieties such as Flora Gold, Brittany Gold and Tomcot may increase production in these areas.
Late frost and heavy rain may also affect production. Late blooming varieties like Harglow, Harcot, Earli Autumn and Chinese can avoid being affected by these conditions. Another aid is to cover the tree with a sturdy row cover. We offer this product in Orchard and Garden Supplies.
