Prunus armeniaca ‘Blenheim’

Common Name | Apricot
Popular Plant Non-CA Native | Pacific Nurseries
Non-CA Native
Prunus armeniaca ‘Blenheim’ is a favorite for your clients who are looking for a great fruit tree that will do well in the Mediterranean climate zones of the Bay Area. They perform best in full sun with moist, well-drained soil. Apricots also require 400 hours of chill time below 45°F in the winter to prepare for spring buds. They bloom in February and early March and do best in conditions with dry spring weather. Apricots are also susceptible to late spring frosts and bacterial canker is a common disease of young trees in the Bay Area. Trees should be planted about 10—20′ apart and they begin fruiting in their second year. Apricots are mostly self-fruitful and ripen in late June to July. The fruit is sweet, aromatic, and juicy which makes it great for eating, baking, drying, or canning.
