An earlier form of this famous variety which was supposedly introduced from the continent to Moorpark, Hertfordshire, in the mid 18th Century. 'Early Moorpark' (Prunus armeniaca 'Early Moorpark') has an attractive pale yellow skin with an orange blush on the sunny side. The apricots have deep reddish-orange flesh and are very juicy. A good choice of apricot for planting on walls or a sheltered spot to protect from spring frost.
Picking Period: Early August
Fertility: This apricot is self-fertile, so no need for another apricot to act as a pollination partner for it to produce fruit.
