Who all on here grows apricots up north :)
The way this spring is going looks like some people growing apricots may get some fruit. Who on here all grows apricots and what variety , and how's it looking for you .
My three westcot are probably 5 year old trees just planted last year. One is planted north of my home the others on south . The tree in the front north side suffered about 1% die back all buds survived and are starting to flower. The two in the south of my house suffered mass damage to almost all buds . I did cover them in burlap but still the temperatures in winter must have killed the buds. I mean the hotter temps as they are very exposed to high winter temps , next winter I will wrap even better or put up shades in front of them. But those two are also going to flower but lower on the tree .
I'm pretty pumped that they are flowering and we have already passed our usual last frost date.
Who all on here is growing apricots ... I'm sure many are interested on updates of your trees.
