The editor-in-chief of Mother Earth News asked me if I knew anyone who had
apricot pits of a variety suitable for her climate. She is in Zone 6, with
the average last frost of April 21 and first frost of Oct. 11. Her season
is about 175 days.
She wants to try growing a tree from pits, since I raved about my
experiences with growing Montrose from pits generously given by Del Stubbs.
The magazine has slated an article on growing apricot trees from pits for
late 2006. I'm sure I'll be talking to some of you apricot enthusiasts
early next year about your experiences.
Meanwhile, what varieties will grow for her and does anyone have or will
have pits to give her? I'll gladly pay the postage.
