Fruit - The Apricot

( Originally Published Early 1900's )

This fruit is managed in practically the same way as the peach. It is far less appreciated on the farm than it should be, mainly because it is frequently planted in places exposed to the sun, which hastens blooming. Often, in such situations, the blossoms are nipped by early frost and no fruit results. It is desirable, therefore, to plant this fruit on north-ern slopes and places shaded from the early morning sun, so as to retard blossoming. The fruit has a plum-like pit. The foliage is more like the plum than the peach. (See Peach.)
