Why the Grand Tilton Apricot Bare Root?
Tilton Apricots are an all time favorite for flavor and are considered one of the best apricots for freezing, drying, and canning. The tree's fragrant, pink spring blossoms will brighten up your landscape. This variety is known for withstanding harsh weather and late frosts, making it a fantastic addition to northern home orchards. Tilton apricots do not need a pollinizer partner, but they are excellent at pollinizing other apricot varieties.
The Tilton Apricot was developed in the late 1880's in California, at a time when apricots were becoming big business. Late frosts were ruining the crops, so J.E. Tilton developed this variety to withstand the stormy weather and accompanying frosts.
How to use in the landscape?
Apricots are not all that Grand Tilton will provide, you'll be able to sit back and enjoy cheerful, pink bloom clusters during mid spring. You'll enjoy watching the rosy blooms transforming from petalled flowers to heart-shaped freestone fruit in the summer. Each apricot is orange with a pleasant aroma and holds a delectable flavor in its firm flesh.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
