Tlor-Tsiran is an unusual, naturally occurring very cold hardy hybrid of apricot (P. armeniaca) and myrobalan plum (P. cerasifera) from central Asia. Also known as black apricot. The skin of the delicious, oval fruit is fuzzy like an apricot but is dark purple. The tree is self fertile, somewhat brown rot resistant and very winter hardy. The flesh is a pretty marbled red and yellow.

The tree's white blossoms appear slightly later than other apricots, pollinated by apricots or plum crosses. The trees grow vigorously, but fruit production is lower than other apricots.
