Cold hardy apricots include Brookcot, Debbie?s Gold, M.604, Westcot, Suphany, and Precious. Jerseycot, Alfred, Tomcot, and Puget Gold are well worth a try. These develop flowers that are a little more frost tolerant, but the trees themselves are not quite as cold hardy as the first group. Apricot trees need full sunshine and well draining soils. Best wishes with your apricot trees!
