Apricots from the tree are delicious, but our climate is marginal for growing them and crops are not always good. We grow Tomcot and Flavourcot and there is always a queue to get them when they ripen, so check updates for get your ration.
I am sorry to say that the apricot crop again looks poor this year, and I am at a loss to know why. I have planted some different varieties over this winter and will feed them more, but we still have much to learn.
Please do not pick them until we allow it, it is frustrating to see them picked under-ripe.
