First outdoor Apricots “Ninfa” of 2017 season. Well I had to gather them, as we are experiencing gusty winds and they were being knocked off. They look like they another 2 weeks of ripening. So they are now in a bowl in the kitchen waiting for them to ripen fully.
We did not have much in the way of snow or frosts last winter 2016/17. We only had one late frost, that caused some of my walnut shoots to blacken. But obviously not enough to cause a problem with the flowering of this variety.
Released in 1981in the ACD Bologna University. It is an hybrid from Ouardi x Tiryntos varieties.
Not very vigorous with natural open tendency. High productivity.
Medium to early blossom time
Large size (55-60mm). Reddish colour on light yellow background. Round shape. Uniform light yellow flesh.
Medium-small (7% of the fruit) oblong.
7 days respect to Ouardi and 14 respect to Bulida.
Very interesting variety for its ripening season with high productivity.
