Beautiful tree no fruit! Review by Liz - Twin Falls, ID
Posted on 2014-08-09 05:27:10

I'm giving this tree a 3 rating because it is a pretty tree and takes pruning very well. After 4 yearsof flowering I still have never had an apricot. They have been well cared for organic fruit spikes plenty of water, the bees do their business of pollenating but there has never been any fruit.




Bush Apricot Review by Eva - Navarre, FL

I received my 2 Bush Apricot trees yesterday and all I can say was WOW and SUPPRISE! I am very please with the trees that I received in my mailbox. Both tree roots were wrap nice and they were about 18-24 inches tall. Now I have to go plant them. Looking forward to seeing the grow. Thank Michigan Bulb the long wait was worth the while. Waited for almost 3 months to get. But they came just in time.




Excellent condition, exceeded expectations! Review by J. Rivera - Orlando, FL

Even though I live outside the recommended USDA hardiness range (zone 9b), I ordered the Bush Apricot from Michigan Bulb Co. to see if it can do well down here with lots of attention and TLC! Although it was the first time I ordered trees from this company, I was really impressed with the condition and quality of the plant I received. I've ordered trees from other online places before and received mostly whips and twigs with no branches instead of real trees. When I opened the package sent by Michigan Bulb Co. I was pleasantly surprised to see a nice starter tree with multiple branches and buds ready to sprout! I also received a Weeping Cherry and a Ruby Red Pie Cherry in my order, both plants in excellent condition as well. I'm so pleased with the Bush Apricot that I went ahead and ordered three more! I definitely recommend to give this tree a try. You won't be disappointed. Thank you, Michigan Bulb Co.!

Bush Apricot Trees produce soft, juicy, delicious fruits in the late summer months. And at five to ten feet high, these trees are ideal for any size yard. The Bush apricot fruits tend to be golden in color and most grow densely. Because one tree can produce a high fruit volume annually, apricots can be eaten fresh, dried for later snacking, or bottled in jams or jellies. Bush apricots are about the size of golf balls, which makes them perfect for snacking. These trees thrive best in cooler climates, and should be planted in the spring or autumn months. It is important to thin out Bush apricot fruits, as the branches can become overcrowded. With regular water and fertilization, apricot trees can flourish and add stunning aesthetics to your yard and sweet, delicious treats to your refrigerator.

Like most fruit trees, Bush Apricot Trees have a slow growth rate, so you can expect to see fruit three to four years after planting a seed. However, purchasing a young tree rather than a seed can accelerate this process. You may see fruit sooner if you plant a more mature tree rather than a seedling. In addition to producing succulent fruit, Bush Apricot Trees can also add to your yard’s aesthetics with their delicate white flowers, which typically bloom in the spring.
