I was given a seedling of this plant to plant at my mom's in central Florida. 10 yrs later I was being asked what this fruit tree was?. It was a cold hardy, winter-deciduous, crepe myrtle sized tree that dropped its golden fruit all at once. The fruit taste resembled apricot.
If the fruits were not gathered, a single large stone remained.
