By: TB   (2013-08-21)

August saw us plant over 2000 new apricot trees on JackyBird's Harmony Farm. The two primary cultivars - tried and proven 'Bebeco' and brand new 'Mogador' - will commence production in three years time and, once fully grown, should produce over 100 tons annually of succulent sweet table apricots for the retail and export trade. The 'Mogador' is particularly exciting as it is a new very early varietal that will typically be ready for harvesting right at the beginning of November, two weeks earlier than the normal start of the apricot season around mid-November. The Bebeco is an excellent all-rounder suitable for eating, drying, canning, pureeing and juicing.
