Early Blush™ Apricot Tree

The Early Blush™ apricot tree developed at Rutgers University, is a self-pollinating, cold-hardy variety suitable for USDA zones 5-7, known for its early-ripening, medium-sized fruits with a sweet and tangy flavor and a distinctive orange-red blush. It requires timely harvesting due to the fruit’s tendency to soften rapidly, especially at the pistil end, but offers excellent flavor for fresh eating.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
