Apricot Tree From Seed

by Shakil
(San Jose, CA)

Hi There,
I planted an Apricot seed from a fruit variety I loved so much when traveling in Mediterranean. The plant did sprout out of the seed and has been growing well. However no, fruits. The last 2-years, it has flowered. Seed planted in 2002.

What do I need to do to make sure there are more flowers this year and fruits will stay on long enough to grow and produce a tasty Apricot?

Botanical Journeys Plant Guides

Apricots are technically self-fruitfull but they set fruit more reliably when 2 or 3 different varieties are grown near one another.

Plant at least one more apricot tree if you've got room. If not, talk your next door neighbor into planting one.

That should solve your problem.
