Harogem Apricot

Description: Harogem is a Canadian variety that crops in early July. Regular high productivity of medium-sized red fruits. Flesh is sweet and freestone, juicy and aromatical with good firmness. The fruit is ideal for fresh consumption and market sale. The tree is medium vigor, nearly upright. Older popular variety, with good healthy fruit characteristics. Beautiful white flowers in the spring!

History: Bred by Richard Leyne from Harrow, Ontario, Canada in 1979.

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!
