This is a relatively fast-growing, small tree with a spreading, rounded canopy. Its leaves are heart-shaped with serrated margins. Pinkish white blossoms appear in spring, followed by large, yellow apricots which ripen in mid to late summer. The fruit is sweet, rich and juicy and considered to be one of the best apricots for flavour. Although this variety is self-fertile, it would benefit from planting two or more varieties to produce a better crop.
