With your own fruit orchard, you’ll know exactly where your fruit comes from and you’ll be able to save money, too. Also, homegrown apricots always taste better than store bought. The Katy apricot trees get extra bonus points because they have an early ripening nature. Once this tree is covered in fruit, you’ll be able to pick and enjoy straight off the tree or use them for desserts, canning, making jams and jellies or dried fruit. Be a good neighbor and share your bounty with friends and family!
Katy Apricot trees can grow to be medium sized and we recommend trimming to your desired height to make it easier for anyone to pick the harvest. They have a fast growth rate and love to grow in an area that gets plenty of full sun exposure. There is no denying that these are great trees to have in your backyard. Attractive vibrant green foliage and large, red-blushed fruit adds a nice splash of color into any landscape. Plant a few near windows and you can enjoy the fragrance of the springtime bloom of white flowers.
