Sugar Pearls™ Apricot

Description
After tasting Sugar Pearls, we were at a loss for words to describe the full-bodied, sweet golden-honey flavor of this incredible white apricot. Totally unlike any apricot (or any other fruit for that matter) you've ever tasted, bursting with sun-sweetened nectar. It's just too good to pass up! Can bear as quickly as a year after planting and blooms much later than all other apricot varieties—so even if you were too far north to grow apricots before—now's your chance! Plant with Honey Pearls Nectacot to ensure pollination. Ripens late June to early July. Zones 4-7. PP18639.
