Apricot, 'Adirondack Gold'
Variety description: This hardy variety originated as a chance seedling found growing in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, where a 60 day growing season is the norm. Small fruit has non-fuzzy skin and dense, sweet flesh. This cultivar is self-fruitful and does not require a pollinator for good fruit set. Later blooming by a few days than other cultivars. This variety was introduced by St. Lawrence Nursery of Potsdam, NY which was long an excellent source for northern climate fruit trees. This was the only apricot tree in our collection to survive the seesawing temperatures of the winter of '15/'16 with flower buds intact.
