Flowers are similar in morphology to peach, plum, and cherry. The fruit is a drupe similar to a small peach, 1.5–2.5 cm (0.6–1.0 in) diameter (larger in some modern cultivars), from yellow to orange, often tinged red on the side most exposed to the sun.

Apricot trees grow best in areas that don’t get a spring frost since they flower early in the spring and an early frost destroys their flowers.

Dried apricots are a type of traditional dried fruit.

Prunus campanulata, Taiwan Cherry, Formosan Cherry

Click to see full-size image Prunus campanulata
Family: Rosaceae
Taiwan Cherry, Formosan Cherry
Origin: Taiwan, South China
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Short-lived small deciduous tree, 15 to 25ft tall and almost as wide; smooth, reddish-brown bark; coarsely serrated leaves, 3.6in long, with pubescent undersides.

Fast-growing Taiwan cherry will usually bloom in its third year from seed. This is an outstanding flowering tree for the Japanese style garden or simply as a specimen or accent anywhere early spring color is desired. Unfortunately, Taiwan cherry seldom lives more than 10-15 years.

Light: Does best in full sun, but will tolerate considerable shade.

Moisture: Regular garden watering.

Taiwan cherry tolerates heat better than other flowering cherries.

Propagation: Seeds, tip cuttings in spring and early summer.

Prunus cerasoides, Himalayan flowering cherry

Family: Rosaceae
Himalayan flowering cherry

Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterPink flowersIrritatingEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Medium tree. Leaves narrowly ovate, sharply toothed. Flower bright pink in clusters. Ovoid 1/2" fruit, bright red and shiny, with single stone. Often grown along roadsides for its beautiful flowers. It is in flower in April. The flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by insects.

Although no specific mention has been seen for this species, it belongs to a genus where most, if not all members of the genus produce hydrogen cyanide, a poison that gives almonds their characteristic flavour. This toxin is found mainly in the leaves and seed and is readily detected by its bitter taste. It is usually present in too small a quantity to do any harm but any very bitter seed or fruit should not be eaten. In small quantities, hydrogen cyanide has been shown to stimulate respiration and improve digestion, it is also claimed to be of benefit in the treatment of cancer. In excess, however, it can cause respiratory failure and even death. Originally introduced as a garden ornamental for its attractive blossom but now an aggressive invader in many parts of southern Africa.

Origin: Middle East
Can be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersFragrantEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.

We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.DeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Small to medium sized tree with a spreading, open canopy, usually 10-15 feet in commercial orchards. Leaves are linear or slightly ovate, about 3-4 times longer than wide, with acute tips and finely serrate margins. Leaves are 3-5 inches in length, slightly smaller and less folded along the midrib than those of its close relative the peach.

Almonds produce best on deep, loamy, well-drained soils, but will tolerate poor soils, and even drought during the latter portion of fruit development better than most tree crops. In intensive orchards, soils are managed similar to other stone fruits, but less-intensive plantings of the Mediterranean area occur on calcareous, rocky, and droughty soils. Like all Prunus species, almonds are intolerant of wet, poorly drained soil.

Almonds are the most widely-used nut for confectionery items like candy bars, cakes, toppings, etc. Much of the crop is roasted and flavored or salted and sold in cans; broken and small kernels go to confectionery.

Prunus sp. - Mayglo Nectarine, Low chill, Grafted

Click to see full-size image
What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful


 Close window

The Mayglo nectarine needs 200 hours of chill time. It is considered to be one of the best for the Northern/Central Florida and similar climates. The fruit tends to be somewhat oval in shape. The skin color is bright red and the flesh is light yellow in color with a cling stone. The taste is good. The texture is fine, firm and melting. It's one of early varieties - fruit ripen in May. This is a self-fruitful variety.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZERS:
Fruit Festival Plant Food - Super Crop Booster
Mango-Food - Smart Release Fruit Tree Booster
SUNSHINE-Honey - sugar booster
