My four year old Tlor-Tsiran Apricot finally fruited! Where i am at we are a once every seven years apricot and this one has withstood extremely low temperatures and many snows. So far its still hanging onto the fruits. I had planned on grafting extra pollinators onto it as I have read many reports of it not setting fruit and while i believe its pollinators would be a Thundercloud plum and a eastern (asia) apricot, I could not find any thunderclouds in bloom near me although i know they are several landscaping trees within a mile of me (strange year with bloom syncing) I know of no other apricots within a mile of me.
However it has a excellent fragrance and always is one of my first to blossom and i saw bees fly directly from it to my superior plum and so on (The only pollination partner i can identify) which usually means they are pollen compatible. I hope this information helps others get there’s to set fruit! It maybe has 50 fruitlets on the whole tree and i was wondering what the best way to protect these (many are high up) from birds and squirrels?
