Aprium – Cot-N-Candy, Aprium Prunus armeniaca x domestica ssp.aprium ‘Cot-N-Candy’, is an apricot-plum hybrid that resembles an apricot. It looks like an apricot, but has a distinctive flavor and texture all its own.
Cot-N-Candy’s flesh is extra sweet and juicy with a plumy aftertaste. It is a multi-stemmed, shrubby, small tree with a spreading crown.
Cot-N-Candy is partially self fertile but you will get bigger crops if pollinated by an apricot. One of the earliest ripening fruits, in mid June in California, it also blooms very early and is difficult to grow in late frost areas.
Con-N-Candy needs well-drained, moderately fertile soil. It is best to thin fruit early in season to maximize size and quality.
