DESCRIPTIONEarly Orange - this is a dessert variety that matures early and is highly fertile. It produces medium-sized fruits (30-45 g), spherical-oval, regular shaped, dark orange, covered with a rather large amount of bright red fuzzy blush which is slightly velvety. The flesh is moderately juicy, slightly sweet/sour, aromatic, and above all very tasty. Separates easily from the stone.
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. This variety does not require a pollinator.
