Bergeval® Apricot

Description: Bergeval is a modern French apricot. A cluster of attractive, large orange-red fruits appear in late June that have an orange flesh; very juicy and have an excellent aromatic, sweet taste without sour skin. They're delicious when they're picked and eaten straight from the tree. The tree is medium vigor, very good ramifying, semi-upright with a strong central leader. High regular productivity!

History: Developed from the well-known Bergeron by the French Research Station in Inra during the 1950s. The first trees were planted in 2006 in an Orchard in the Rhone Valley.

Apricot Growing Tips: Only prune in the early summer as part of the fruit thinning operation in heavy cropping years or after picking in light cropping years. If there is no crop, do not prune. Apricots do not suffer from peach curl disease but be aware they do get bacterial canker quite badly during prolonged wet weather. Pot growing is acceptable provided there is even moisture. Good drainage is essential and for the very best success a southerly wall is perfect…they deserve a prime position!
