I grow many of the same varieties here in a zone 3 climate in the northern
US. The only cultivars that are typically touted for the far north that I'd
avoid are (surprisingly) Moongold and Sungold from the Minnesota breeding
program. Not very hardy and not particularly good quality. I am intrigued
by those "famous Capilano apricots from Edmonton". I've not heard of them
before and who in the North would not want to try a famous apricot--Can you
tell us more about them?

I have Morden 604, Westcot, Cowley, Scout, Precious, Lorraine, Sunshine
seedlings, Heaver seedlings, and a bunch of seedlings from the famous
Capilano apricots in Edmonton. I also have a couple other new grafts from
this year that haven't been added to my master list yet and I'm not actually
sure if they even took (stuff like Harcot, Harlayne and Hargrand)
