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.

good for pots in alkaline areas.
Apricots are not sold in my area due to our alkaline soil. I bought four of these dwarf treas to grow in containers and be able to control the soil pH. They arrived in about a week to central Texas and they were well wrapped and packaged. I soaked them right away for a few house, but I wasn't ready to pot them up for a few days. I bought 13" self watering plastic pots and made a soil mix or native organic potting soil, acid amendment, Bio Tone and perlite. I have them set on the east side of my house, which is the coldest and I'll be able to move them around as the season go's on. I

    Well packaged. Heathy little tree.
    Arrived well packed and still damp. Looks healthy with leaf still evident. We have had fruit success with our other dwarf trees and I can't wait to see this apricot tree thrive. Will update spring of 2022.

      Excellent healthy tree!
      I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Everything from delivery, packaging and plant health on arrival was great. I received the tree later in January and planted it on a warm day in February. It took off quickly as it was there since a year before. Produced strong tall multiple shoots and is still growing. This is the first year for the tree, so I can’t comment on fruits, yet:). I certainly will buy from this seller again!

          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
            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.

              Can't wait to taste the apricots next summer!
              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.
