Katy Apricot trees ripen late May to early June and require roughly 350 chill hours(16-21 days of 45 degrees F. or below). Katy Apricots are self fertile but generally do better if provided with a cross pollinator. The Katy Apricot tree is extremely productive and the fruit is boxed up by growers during early Summer for shipment to grocery markets. Because the Katy apricot contains lots of sugar, it is a valuable fruit for drying to be eaten in the future, when no fresh fruit is available.
