Japanese Flowering Apricots

Prunus armeniaca mume

Our legendary Japanese flowering Apricot trees with unusually beautiful bright “green” branches and loads of delicate pink almond scented flowers.

They flower very early in the spring and can be frosted and lose the crop but not their beauty. The cut flowers are unequaled in early spring. In Japan and other parts of the Orient, the ripe fruit is made into apricot brandy or jam.

Green fruit is used to scent tea, candied, boiled, made into a vinegar, preserved in sugar or often pickled in salt to make “Umeboshi”. Each is partially self fertile but select two varieties for better pollination. These gorgeous trees grow to 15’ or more.

USDA Zones 5-9
