I’d be interested maybe in a week or two.  Could I ask for the source of the tree?

Go bills btw

Ya it's a heavy producer for me. I bring my trees indoors so it grows year round, it flowers right about when the previous crop is finished. Really one of the easiest trees to care for and get to fruit consistently. Shoot me a message I'll be shipping out tues.

I'm the worst at describing flavors lol. It's a sour fruit with subtle flavors if you have ever had a lemon drop mangosteen it has this "green" or fresh flavor I can't really describe but I get it in these fruit as well adam prolly said it best with a warhead candy but dont expect the sweet inside lol. No seeds either so u can chomp down!!! Miracle fruit help them out alot but I might try making a jelly or something like that soon with them.

ah jeez just pure outside warhead. I'll try making some jelly or ice cream and maybe we'll arrive at a sweet use for them.

Looking good Bill!
I saw the mother tree at the F and S park, and boy is it gigantic.
My plant just started to flower, but no set yet.
Hoping it will be worth keeping as I like sour fruits.

It's ok if you like sour apricot flavor. It has more potential processed into preserve. It grows like a weed in Florida and has a wide bush growth habit.

If your lacking room I would skip, if you have plenty of room and want a bullet proof fruiting plant then I would recommend it.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Me and my son will pick them early and see who can keep them in there mouth the longest lol.  It's almost painful when they arnt fully ripe. Won't be long until you can post a youtube vid of your face eating unripe ones!!!

It is a fast grower! My tree is about 5ft now but it's been close to 7 ft now on it's way to about 3ft where itll stay. Its in a 2-3 gal pot ,when it looks unhappy i root prune it and plop it back in the pot with some new soil and its happy again. When I bring it indoors I do have to prune it about once a month to keep it manageable. They must get big quick in the ground!

Yes it gets big fast, I have to chop it back a few times a year to keep it controlled.

For a similar tier fruit I would recommend Spondias purpura. It has a shorter season than tropical apricot, however the fruit tastes better and tree is more manageable with better ornamental look.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
