Apricot, 'Chinese Golden'
An apricot with a few names and uncertain origins. Also called 'Chinese', 'Mormon', 'Chinese Sweet Pit', and 'Large Early Montgamet'. Medium fruit with golden-orange skin, with a red blush, smooth in texture; flesh sweet, juicy, firm. It is called "sweet pit" because after you eat the fruit, you can also crack the seed like an almond and eat the kernel.
Hardy, precocious and heavy bearing, this tree blooms later than other apricots and is a good selection for high elevation or late-frost areas.
