Currently, a large number of different varieties of apple trees are presented in nurseries. Those or other types of culture are chosen by their qualities. Apple tree Apricot corresponds to many standards important for any gardener. In this article, consider a description of the variety, flavoring qualities of fruits, agrotechnical features, positive sides, frost resistance, as well as pollination.
History of removal of varieties
The variety was led in 1935 by breeders from Russia for industrial production. Now it is prevalence both at home plots and in industrial gardens.
Description of varieties
Apple tree Apricot refers to summer ripening varieties. Fruption begins for 3 years after planting a seedling in open ground.
Middle Height Tree, Height 3-3.5 m. Crown is wide and round, dense. Branches, like trunk, thick, color rich brown cortex. Branches grow from a tree under an acute angle. Evalulenny shoots.
Leaves in size average, dark green shade, with a characteristic rear cross section. The leaves are slightly twisted on the sides inside.
Crown thickened, as the kidneys on the branch are located close to each other. Kidney large, color brown-green.
Features, pros and cons
Each apple tree has positive sides. Apple tree apricot many positive qualities:
the duration of the ripening of fruits;
By minuses include:
short shelf life;
the presence of a certain soil;
Frequency in fruiting – year harvest, holiday year.
Ripening and fruiting
The main fruction begins for 5 years after landing in the soil. The first test apples ripen for 2-3 year. In the first 5 years, the harvest is stable, but in the following years many gardeners celebrate the instability of the crop. Year of good harvest and year without harvest.
Dials apple tree color in May. Flowers in spring gentle pink color with a characteristic apple aroma. The first fruits appear in early August.
There is a high yield, at a time you can collect up to 65 kg of apples.
Fruits and their taste
Apples in the form rounded, slightly oblong, somewhat resemble the pear shape. Fruit weight on average 140 g. The skin is dense with barely noticeable gloss, the color of the peel yellow with a small blush on the sides. The flesh is juicy, dense, with lots of juice, white color.
The taste of fruits is sweet, but there is a small acid.
In the first week after harvest, apples have good transportability and resistance to impacts.
Features of cultivation
Planting seedlings can be carried out as spring to the dissolution of the kidneys and in the fall. The basic requirements for seedlings are that the root system must be well developed, have root kidneys, as well as roots should not be dry. The trunk must be direct, and the bark – without damage and cracks. Vaccination should be pronounced.
Place for disembarking is chosen solar, without strong through winds. It is best to plant an apple tree on the elevation, to avoid groundwater. If this is not possible, the drainage system is always envisaged.
The main requirement for this variety is moderate and regular watering. With abundant irrigation, yield will begin to fall, as well as resistance to the temperature difference, which will subsequently lead to the fact that the apple tree will not be able to overvolt.
The feeding is held three times for the season: in the spring, summer and autumn periods.
Crown trimming, its formation will provide a stable harvest and large fruits. Since the kidneys is a lot, and the crown is thick, then a lot of nutrients goes to the formation of branches. Forming a crown from the very first year to plant a tree. Extra branches are cut off, only skeletal is left, they are shortened in the spring for 30 cm for the first 2 years.
It is worth watching the bark not to burn into the sun, otherwise it will begin to flap, and then pests will be easier to penetrate the trunk of the tree. If this happened, then the emptiness formed can be lubricating the garden harder or whiten the barrel of the apple from the ground level before the first branches.
Apple tree Apricot has flowers of both sexes, so no additional pollination is required.
Apple tree has good frost resistance rates, up to -40 degrees, so there is no need to strengthen the trunk.
Stroit the trunk stands in the regions with minor, cold winters, and in those regions where temperature differences occur. And also shelted young seedlings in the early years after disembarking or in summer seasons with abundant precipitation.
To secure the trunk, it can be wrapped in agricultural or synthetic tube with a film (so that it does not get wet). If winter is colder, then you can insulate the sweetheart. Distribute it to branches up, and leaves down, creating something like a shala. Top of the fabric to climb the trunk. As soon as the first snow falls, the bootter must be sprinkled with snow and slightly. This will create another layer of insulation.
