Prunus Mume/Flowering Apricot

(Prunus armeniaca mume) A legendary Japanese flowering Apricot tree with unusually beautiful bright “green” branches and loads of delicate pink almond scented flowers. It flowers very early in the spring and can be frosted and lose its crop but not its 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. Zones 5-9.

LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
