Product Overview

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.
  • Blenheim is regarded as the richest and most well-flavored apricot grown today
  • Blooms late to avoid frosts, making Blenheim quite adaptable
  • Blenheim is self-pollinating
  • Rich in history and was first cultivated only by European royalty
  • Was the top apricot until cheaper, lesser quality fruit began to be imported recently

The tree came with a few little shriveled branches and the leaves fell off after few days. About 6 weeks later, new shoots appeared. It appears to be growing.

Overall, VERY happy! Online Orchards bare root Dwarf Fuji (1), Honeycrisp (1), and Blenheim Apricot (2) trees are excellent starters for our little orchard. Online Orchards prepared the four in moist sawdust, protected hard plastic, and wrap, then shipped right away. Excellent enclosed and online directions for initial water soak, digging and prepping the planting hole and soil. We put them each in 5 gallon Home Depot buckets with water for 6 hours, dug 3-4 foot diameter holes, then mixed in some garden top soil (not much) because of our predominantly clay ground. We watered twice a day for a week, then once a day for the next three weeks (to date) and will continue for another 4 - 6 weeks. Three of the trees showed new leaves within 10 days (both apples and one Blenheim), and the last Blenheim (which had the least root fibers on arrival) just showed new leaf-buds at 3 weeks. Be patient - up to a point of about a month, I'd guess. Here in NW Olympic Peninsula, deer are constantly roaming through, so netting a perimeter 6 ft high is working great.

Got this for a birthday gift along with another tree. Looks really healthy and I'm so excited to see how it takes off. I have read a lot about these type of apricots and they sound like they are really tasty. Hopefully all goes well and I will be harvesting by next summer.

Very impressed with how the tree came packaged. Bare root tree that was wrapped very wet straw tio keep the roots moist and alive then wrapped in plastic and burlap to keep the box perfect. The tree itself looks very healthy and I planted same day following the directions they included in the package. It is about 3' tall and very sturdy/solid. It even had some signs of life out of the box in the way of 3 small little green leaves coming from the pruned limb area. My last bare root tree (from a different supplier) failed to come to life and was pronounced dead. When comparing how the two varied in shipping method I wonder if the other just failed because of transport. Where Online Orchards used a ton of wet straw held well in place around the roots by the burlap and plastic this other supplier used nothing to hold only a small handful of wet newspaper loosely in the area of the roots. Anyways point being if anything Online Orchards does a fantastic job of packing/shipping bare root trees and the tree itself looks very healthy so I am excited and looking forward to bringing up what should be a bountiful apricot tree.

I was a bit unsure of buying a tree on line. This apricot tree came packaged very nicely. The trunk is very straight. Also, the instructions on how to plant and care for the tree were very thorough. I am looking forward to watching it grow and produce fruit.

I plopped this little tree in its new home a little less than a week ago and in that amount of time it's already started sprouting new foliage. I was a little concerned because delivery took an extra two days because the shipping company experienced some kind of setback related to the corona virus pandemic. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the material that the roots were packed in still had some moisture. It's only been a week but I am confident that this tree will thrive. As you can tell by the photo I still have some prep work to do to clean up the garden around the tree but cut me some slack. With everybody staying home through the shutdown I have projects to do pretty much everyday. :-p
