Apricot 'Goldcot' - 7 Gal.


Prunus x 'Goldcot'

(Semi-Dwarf) 'Goldcot' produces a great crop of early, medium sized, nearly round Apricots in early August. These delicious fruits are freestone and have a tough golden yellow skin that protects them from easy bruising. 'Goldcot' fruit is fine for fresh eating, but truly shines as a canner since the flavor, texture and the golden color go through the canning process better than most other Apricots without a loss of quality. Apricots like 'Goldcot' contain carotenoids which are antioxidants that help prevent heart disease, reduce "bad cholesterol" levels and protect against cancer. 'Goldcot' is somewhat self-fruitful but for best yield, plant (2) or more together or plant another selection of Apricot nearby. You won't mind planting more since the trees are gorgeous in late April, covered with pink blossoms, and ornamental in summer with their furrowed bark and heart-shaped, glossy leaves. Plant in full sun for the best fruit production.
