» Moorpark is a variety of apricot which has been available in Australia for many years. PlantNet® now makes it available as a dwarf variety. Exclusive to PlantNet®, it is a sweet apricot to eat, and the fruit is an oval shape with an orange colour. It matures around late January, which makes it a mid- to late-season variety. This is a versatile variety which can be used for stewing, making jams or eaten fresh. This variety is self-fruitful and is a prolific bearer, which means it will require staking. A low maintenance tree for confined spaces because of its dwarfing tree size. Ideal for growing in pots or tubs on the patio or great for small sized gardens.
