Apricots are fabulous fresh, cooked (cobblers, pies, jams, pastries and more), and dried for later consumption as a terrific any-season treat; especially appreciated on your next family road trip!


Tomcot apricot

Our best selling apricot, this one has a full, rich flavor, a little tangier than expected. These finish to a rich, appetizing orange well before full ripe. Fruit is large and juicy.

Rival apricot


Rounder than Goldrich, Rival is a bright orange apricot with an attractive red blush. Fruit is less acidic than Goldrich, juicy, and full flavored. Size is comparable to Goldrich.

Goldbar apricot


One of the releases from the Prosser Experiment Station, you will enjoy the rich flavor of these large beauties.

Blenheim apricot


Blenheim is a small, sweet apricot favored by many for canning. It’s very pale skin color and tender flesh make it difficult to harvest at proper maturity. We raise them to provide a pollen source, and to preserve a “heritage” variety.

Perfection apricot


One of the largest apricots. Clear, yellowish orange to deep orange skin and flesh. Very nice quality, texture and flavor.
