Words don't do justice to the rich, full-bodied, sweet, golden-honey flavor of Sugar Pearls™. These amazing white-fleshed apricots are unlike any fruit we've ever tried before, and must be tasted to be believed! The good news is, Sugar Pearls™ blooms much later than all other apricot varieties - so even if you were too far North to grow apricots before - now's your chance!

Key Features:

  • Zones: 4 - 7 (-20 F.).
  • Height: Standard tree grows 15 - 20 feet.
  • Semi-dwarf tree will grow 12-15 feet tall.
  • Shade Requirement: Needs full Sun for maximum flower and fruit production.

Apricot Tree Pollination for Optimum Fruit Production

Sugar Pearls is considered self-fertile or self-pollinating. But to maximize fruit production, use of a pollinator is highly recommended by our breeder. Use one of following:

  • Honey Pearls Nectacot.
  • Harlayne, Jerseycot or any other late blooming apricot, so they bloom in same season.

No more than 50' spacing is recommended for pollination, but further may work ok.
