Apricots for New York State
Lamb, Robert; Stiles, Warren
Apricots are a delicious fruit that probably would be grown more commonly if they were less frequently damaged by low winter temperatures and late spring frosts. Like peaches, the dormant blossom buds of apricots are frequently killed by temperatures of -23 C (-10 F) or warmer. Also apricots bloom earlier than peaches and are more frequently injured by late spring frosts.
