Nearly ripe apricots

Golden fruit on every branch

Golden fruit on every branch

This is the every-other-year apricot tree laden with fruit.

I picked half-a-dozen ripe ones today but the rest are not quite there yet.

    Hi. I’ve just got a apricot seed to grow and now been a little tree about four inc high. I’m in Michigan, north of USA, were winters are cold. What should i do now to make sure the tree don’t dies. Should i take it inside house and give it lots of light and a little heat, or should i plant it in soil outside at let the nature take care of it? Would it survive winter? Really want this little tree to survive and grow, so i’m thankful for all good advice.

      I would keep it indoors, definitely. I’m not even sure that it will survive your winters when it’s bigger, but it’s certainly worth a try. We have 2 seedlings grown from stones but they’re far too small for us to know if they’ll have fruit. Sometimes trees grown from seeds don’t – like the beautiful grapefruit tree we grew from a pip which never had anything but leaves!
