Gardeners' Notes:

Positive lysis On May 15, 2011, lysis from Scottsdale, AZ wrote:

Tastes like an apricot. Physically, slightly larger than most of my apricot varieties. Orange with a red blush. Vigorous in 8b with a prolific crop in the first year of planting, unlike most apricots that I've planted in the ground.

A apricot plum cross that has about 75 % apricot characteristics. Early (Mid July ripening in Zone 6) and vigorous. Requires 600 chill hours. It is self fruitful, but yield best if interplanted with other apricots.
