Early Giant

An apricot variety that lives up to both aspects of its name, producing baseball-size fruit that ripen in the 3rd or 4th week of May. This year, flavor is excellent (not always the case), and as in other years the yield was low - a small bagfull of fruit.

The tree, like all apricots, has been an exuberant grower and is now, after 7 years, a large, well-shaped tree providing good shade at a corner of the house.
