Casino Apricots are this Week's Fruit of the Week!
What? Apricots grow here? Yes, they do and they are delicious! The Casino Apricot is very hardy (zone 3) and produces free-stone yellow fruit with a red blush that ripens in mid-summer. These tasty fruits are great to eat right off the tree but are also excellent for making jams or for canning.
The Casino apricot is self-pollinating; however, for better yields, cross-pollinate with another apricot or a Nanking Cherry. One of our favourites, the Casino apricot makes a nice addition to a backyard and gives you some more variety in the kind of fruit you can enjoy! Not to mention the beautiful flowers in the spring...
Farm curbside pick-up takes place Saturdays from 10am-12pm, if these times do not work for you please send us an email at email@example.com and we'll arrange a time that does work!
