Apricots in zone 5a?
I read about Goldcot and some other "hardy, late blooming" apricots, and wondered if anyone has tried to grow them in the colder parts of the country. I'm in southern WI, and our last frost date is about May 1st. I could plant a small tree on the south side of my house. If I espalier it, it might not get frost up against the house.
Has anyone successfully grown apricots? Are they worth it? What about the Chinese apricots with the edible almond-like pits? I welcome all opinions!
