Chinese Apricot - experience?

14 years ago

Has anyone had any experience with the Chinese Apricot, also known as the Mormon apricot? It is on the list of recommended varieties by our local extension office in Utah. The main difficulty of apricots in this zone 5 climate is the risk of a late frost that will kill blossoms/developing fruit. I've heard that Chinese is very cold and late frost hardy. It is also self-fruitful-doesn't need a pollinator, and has a sweet pit, you can eat the stone. However, I've also heard that it is clingstone.

Anyone have one or heard of them before?
