Information about Apricot Tree Varieties (cultivars ) including pollination groups, type of fruit and cropping season

ApricotsAll apricot fruit trees are pollinated by insects, however, unlike many other types of fruit trees, most are self pollinating so choosing the right apricot tree cultivars is a relatively easy task and the only major consideration is one of personal preference as to the flavour. The information below will  make it easy for you to  choose suitable apricot tree(s).

 

 

Most apricot trees are self fertile, i.e. they pollinate themselves with no need for another tree however do make sure to confirm this with the nursery or outlet from where you are buying your tree.
