An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be on the shorter side, may be crooked or with slight damage. These trees will still produce the very same fruit as a first or number 1 will. They may need to be staked and they do need regular watering, fertilizer and protection from weeds and hungry animals. All trees will benefit from pruning.
Another fine selection from Harrow, ON. Medium-sized fruit with glossy, bright-red blush over orange background. Very firm, moderately juicy orange flesh has rich flavour. Ideal for either fresh eating or processing. Like most of the Harrow series, Harogem is late blooming and offers superior resistance to most common apricot ailments including perennial canker, brown rot and bacterial spot. They also seem to handle fluctuating winter temperatures better than most.
