hardy apricot source/suggestions

14 years ago

I am seriously toying with putting in a few apricots this spring. After spending some time researching it seems that my best bet for our northern vermont mountains are the hardier Harrow series, or perhaps better yet the canadian prarie cultivars (Brookcot,Debbie's gold, Westcot, And M604. Cummins nursery does have the Harrow series on Manchurian rootstock this year but I can not find any US sources for the others. Any suggestions?

We like fresh apricots but the bulk of the crop (when/if we get one) will go to jam and dried fruit. If folks have input or suggestions outside the varieties mentioned earlier please chime in!
