Gourmet apricot ‘Petit Muscat’ Buy a 1.5m (5ft) potted tree of this prolific cropping, honey-sweet apricot for just £19.99 plus postage
Highly prized for its super-sweet fruits, ‘Petit Muscat’ will give you delicious crops of apricots for many years to come!
Not widely found in supermarkets, but now available to home gardeners, ‘Petit Muscat’ is perhaps the perfect apricot to grow at home. This brilliant cultivar is highly prized by top chefs because of its incredible taste – each fruit has the perfect mix of sweetness, just a hint of acidity and of course is bursting with delicious juice! In early spring the tree is smothered in beautiful white fragrant blossom, which gives way to bumper crops of greengage-sized golden fruit, which are ripe to eat from early August onwards. Crops can be huge and the flavour is intense and honey sweet – reminiscent of Muscat grapes. These stunning trees are compact and precocious croppers, so you’ll get good crops early in the tree’s life. Please note the blossom is not frost hardy, so plant in a sheltered area. With this offer you can buy one 1.5m (5ft)-tall potted tree for just £19.99 (RRP £29.99) plus postage!
