DESCRIPTIONHarcot - this is an early fruiting variety which fruits abundantly and regularly. Fruit size varies widely - from medium to large. The fruits are oval or spherical-ovoid in shape, and are tapered at the stalk. The orange skin is medium-thick, strong, rough, and slightly velvety, with a bright red, fuzzy blush. The flesh could be described as firm, juicy, delicate, slightly aromatic, and above all tasty. Excellent variety for desserts and processing.
ADVICESThe tree is best planted in a sunny position, sheltered from the wind. The plant prefers sandy-clay fertile soil which is moderately moist. The optimum pH is in the range of 6,7-7,2.
To stimulate future growth the tree should be pruned in the first year immediately after planting. Formative pruning should be executed on the main stem, 20 cm above where the planned future branches will grow. The other branches should also be cut, reducing their length by one third. The best time to prune the apricot tree is annually in the spring. Harcot pollination requires the presence of other varieties flowering at the same time. Best results can be achieved by planting with varieties Early Orange, Wczesna z Morden.
