Then, when summer gives way to fall, the glossy dark green foliage turns a deep golden-orange. Your Yoshino Cherry Tree performs best in full sun in any well drained soil. It grows very quickly to 20 feet. One tree will be the focal point of any neighborhood. Imagine how your driveway will look flanked by a pair of these trees, or even lined down its length.

Delightful Sweetness in a Conversation-starting Fruit Perhaps you are familiar with the plum/apricot hybrids known as pluots? Even though they taste amazing, they lean toward the plum side of the family, both in looks and texture. If you are an apricot lover, though, what you want is an Aprium. An Aprium is also a plum/apricot hybrid, but it leans more toward the apricot side of the family in looks and texture. Nature Hills is proud to offer you the Aprium ‘Flavor Delight’. These fruits come on strong in June/July, almost a full month before their pluot brethren, and with a decidedly more ‘apricot-y’ bent. But once you taste one, that amazing marriage of apricot and plum taste will simply blow you away! The zesty apricot tang is softened by the sweetness of the plum and it makes Flavor Delight one of the most flavorful of all the early summer fruits. These are dwarf trees that will fit right into any landscape, large or small. They are self-fruitful, so they don’t need a pollinator, which helps if you’re tight on space. Make sure to order your trees early. These are always popular and they always sell out fast. Remember, the sooner you order the sooner you get to enjoy this supremely sweet fruit. You – and your neighbors – will thank us! * Dwarf* Super-sweet taste* Early harvest.
