The "Apricot Challenge":
Apricots have been a problem fruit to grow in Texas for many years. Although the fruit can be grown in most areas of Texas the trees do not produce every year and may only produce a crop of fruit in 2 out of every 5 years. That is not an ideal situation for most people interested in growing the fruit. It is disappointing to have the trees bloom and then see the blooms or young fruit destroyed by one of our late freezes. (The main reason for inconsistent cropping is that apricots are normally one of the first fruit trees to bloom in the spring.)
So if you do decide to go with apricots please let us know (979/836-7225) and we can help you get started right!
