What are the best apricots for the south.

by Bill Snotherly (William Snotherly)

What are the best apricots for the south below zone 7.  I am a dwarf tree gardener and recently purchased a Garden Annie and Goldkist.  I have heard of Tropic gold and Orangered.  Please advise.



I am guessing you need low chill varieties. Tropic Gold definately but also Katy and Blenheim (sp) along with your selections. Summer pruning will keep the trees at the size you want
