Product Description

The Cot series of Apricot trees have taken the commercial fruit and gardening World by storm in the last 5 or so years, bringing exceptional crop yields and fruit quality.

'Tomcot' is one of the best for the UK climate, suited to our colder climates, where we get less accumulated sunshine, yet we get plenty of Winter chill to set buds.One of the key reasons it works well over here is it is late flowering, so avoids the late frosts that can afflict other Apricots. Yet, it catches up and still yields heavy crops of juicy, deepest orange fruits in the UK - perfect eaten when warmed by the sun straight off the tree, or for cooking and jam making.

The tree is grafted onto dwarfing rootstock, a new dwarfing type keeping it short and manageable. To cap it all, 'Tomcot; is even self-fertile, so does not need a partner to produce heavy crops.

You will get crops in 2 years of planting; this is a great opportunity to buy a tree of the size normally available only to commercial plantations.

'Tomcot' really will deliver big crops of fresh Apricots here in the UK.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Plant near another apricot tree, in a sheltered position for outstanding results. Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to give your plants a head start and establish faster.

Care Guide

  • Plant in full sun or partial shade.
  • Although frost-tolerant, it is still best practice to protect the blossom with fleece when unusually cold weather is expected.
  • When fruit appears, it may need thinning. Remove poorly placed, small, or misshapen fruits when they are about 1cm wide, aiming to have a fruit every 15cm (6in).
  • The best time to prune an apricot tree to keep its shape is annually in the spring. This variety does not require a pollinator.
