Manchurian Apricot
no image

Manchurian Apricot is a winter-hardy relative of the native plum. This tree can stand some drought, but will not handle standing water or saturated moist soils. It can be used in shelterbelts, hedges, or as an ornamental. Manchurian Apricot will also attract songbirds, rabbits, and other rodents if left uncontrolled.

This tree will produce fruit once it reaches maturity at between two and five years old. Other famous cultivars of Manchurian Apricot include Scout Apricot, Moongold, and many more.

Kerr Apple Crab is a cross between Dolgo and Haralson that originated in Manitoba. This hardy variety is so tasty that it is often compared to Golden Delicious. Kerr Apples keep well and are good for fresh eating, cooking, and juicing. As an ornamental, this tree blooms in mid-May with clusters of white flowers born from pink buds.

Although the height of this tree is listed as 20ft, it can grow to just 6ft on dwarfing rootstock like V3.
