Prunus fremontii

Desert Apricot.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Desert Apricot grows in sandy washes and moister hillsides and gullies. This is one of the plants of the desert that you can't figure out have(or why) it grows. You'll almost never see a ripe fruit as it is well liked by critters. The growers have experimented with using Desert Apricot as a rootstock, but no success so far. We're experimenting with growing it to see if we can produce a decent looking plant in a repeatable manner.
