A Goldrich replacement apricot variety!
A new variety which is interesting for its nice appearance, high firmness and very good eating quality. The productivity and size of the fruit allow it to replace the Goldrich variety. First fruiting in 2nd leaf trees is very quick with good regular production after 2 years. Fruit will hang on the tree and have a very good storage life.
