Sweet marvel: 5 varieties of apricot with unusual black and pink fruits

Sweet marvel: 5 varieties of apricot with unusual black and pink fruits

Not all varieties of apricots give the usual yellow-orange fruits. Some hybrids bear black and pink fruits. By the way, this does not affect their taste and yield in any way.

Black Prince

The Black Prince is a fast growing apricot variety. It is a short tree that bears large, dark fruits. The black prince can withstand light frosts and is quite resistant to disease.

The variety produces good yields on a regular basis. Apricot blooms quite late; it does not require pollinators to set fruit. The weight of each fruit reaches 70 g - this is a kind of record among such hybrids.

The fruits are shiny, black, with a noticeable aroma and juicy pulp. They have an excellent presentation, which is preserved during long-term transportation.

The black prince is not picky about the composition of the soil, but it is better that the soil is loose and fertile. When planting, you need to choose the sunniest place in the garden.


The Krasnoshchekiy variety was bred in the middle of the last century by Russian breeders. He immediately won the recognition of European gardeners because of his frost resistance and undemanding care.

Red-cheeked has a high yield. Fruits are oval or heart-shaped, not particularly large in size, but pleasant for their tender and juicy pulp. Distinctive features of the variety are a seam on the belly of the fruit and a slight pink blush on the sides.

When deciding to plant an apricot in your garden, keep in mind that the tree grows up to 4 meters. It has a fairly spreading crown and long branches. Plants live up to 50 years.

It is better to harvest the crop unripe, so it can be stored for another two weeks. Overripe apricots instantly crumble, so they are harvested several times per season.

Black velvet

A frost-resistant and high-yielding variety. During the flowering period, the tree retains its buds even in the event of a change in the weather. Experts were surprised to notice that the yield of Black Velvet increases somewhat.

The tree is partly pollinated by itself, but the proximity of cherry plum, plum and blackthorn is desirable for additional pollination. The crop ripens quite early. The fruits of Black Velvet are small, oval, dark, with a purple tint.

The pulp of the fruit is red and juicy, with a delicate, sweet and sour taste. Unripe apricots can be stored in a cool place for more than 3 months. The transportability of this variety is also very good.

Growing Black Velvet in your garden is not that difficult. For him, you need to find a southern slope, protected from cold winds. The soil should be loose and not acidic. Care must be taken that there is no stagnant water in the ground.

Saratov ruby

Ripe fruits of the Saratov Rubin variety have a bright orange color with a ruby ​​tint. Their pulp is tender, sweet, with a pronounced aroma. Fruits are perfectly transported and retain excellent marketability for up to two months. Ripe fruits hardly crack.

Sometimes lovers of this variety are faced with the problem of unripe fruit falling off. This happens for several reasons. Perhaps there are a lot of apricots tied up and the tree just throws them off. The second reason is the natural aging of the plant.

Saplings take root well on fertile and light soil. When planting, the plant must be watered abundantly. After a while, the tree will form a voluminous spherical crown.

Melitopol black

Apricots of this variety bloom late and therefore hardly suffer from night frosts. Fruits ripen early, they are large enough, have a pleasant aroma and light honey taste.

Melitopol black is quite resistant to cold weather and successfully resists most diseases. In the garden, it is placed on the south side, a little organic matter can be added to the soil before planting. The seedling is periodically watered, but care must be taken that the water does not stagnate around the plant.
