About This Product

Blenheim are considered the richest, best flavored apricots for fresh eating and cooking by top chefs all over the world. They're known for having the perfect balance of sugar, tartness, and acidity, which combine for a classic and savory apricot flavor. The Blenheim tree is quite versatile because it blossoms later than other apricots, allowing for a wider growing range. Another noteworthy characteristic is that the Blenheim tree is self-pollinating. This and its versatile growing range make Blenheim an excellent choice for home orchards across the country. At 1 point in history, Blenheim apricots were almost entirely grown in the courtyards of European royalty. This was the apricot of choice among the wealthiest individuals in that time. The Blenheim tree was imported, where its fame and demand spread like wildfire. Unfortunately, production of this former #1 apricot has almost entirely come to a halt due to cheaper, lesser quality fruit being imported to take its place. Blenheim apricots are arguably the most flavorful and the homegrown fruit is quite incomparable to the lesser quality apricots available in grocery stores today. Blenheim is the most desirable apricot tree for home orchards today due to its amazing flavor, adaptability, rich history, and self-pollination.

  • Shipped at a height between 3 ft. and 4 ft.

    Came in perfect condition
    Came very well packaged and just as I was expecting. Only thing is waiting until spring to see if it produces leaves. Will update later. But overall, delivery was fast and no complaints!

      Not 3-4 feet tall
      Even if I measure to the very base of the pot, only one of these hit the mark. I actually had to look up measuring plant height, and all that I read indicated that you would measure from the dirt level up. These are very small with zero leaves. I have planted both, but these are absolutely not as advertised. I will be hopeful that these poor little guys will be so happy to have a real chance that they may flourish, but they will need care and more time than expected from the description.

        poor quality
        Should have listemed to the reviews. Just a stick grafted onto rootstock.

          damaged in transport
          This apricot tree was smaller than the other three fruit trees I bought. The box was crushed in delivery, and snaped some budding branches right at the Y. So heart breaking.. I belive the tree will survive. The branches did look healthy just very skinny.

              Too small
              This tree was no where near 3 feet. The scion looks pretty bad too. I was expecting a small tree not a twig on rootstock. On top of that my order was missing 3 other trees. Hd customer service refunded me for the missing items easily but so far not happy with the tree.

                First of all I am an experienced gardener. I always love to have an apricot in our garden and tried to have one. It was good if the apricot survived but even I planted as instructed the tree DIED, beyond any revival. I am expecting a FULL refund, or at least a replacement.I am very, very disappointed.

                Pleasantly surprised
                I got this tree delivered in January in the northeast, zone 6. It arrived bare root and packaged perfectly. I was a little skeptical, because it was just bare sticks. It looked like a dead branch in my pot. But…. By February, little green buds arrived. Now it is April and it’s bushy and lovely. I moved it outside. It will come in Oct-April to hunker down for the winter. I absolutely love this tree. So if you are in a cold winter area, rest assured, it’s a great patio pot tree.

                  Do not recommend to buy unless you have extensive experience.
                  Will not purchase again. Almost no roots. "Tree" looks like stick that was wrapped in nice packaging.

                  Doing Great
                  I was a bit concerned about planting it during winter time here in South California. But to my surprise, there was no issue. It is thriving . It is taller than me now. I am so happy about it. (picture taken this July 12, 2022). Hoping that it will bear sweet fruits soon and that would an additional review.
