History: Debbie's Gold was introduced by Aubins Nursery in Manitoba in 1980.

Why We Grow It: Debbie's Gold is a relatively new but promising apricot variety for us. It is very cold hardy and late blooming, which improves the chance of a crop in our climate. It produces small fruit with a nice sweet flavour, although it is a little less sweet than other apricots which makes it great for canning.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 3

Soil Preference: Sandy loam, loam, clay loam. Prefers average to moist conditions with well-drained soils, avoid planting anywhere that floods for more than two weeks in the spring. 

Growth Habits: Vigorous with a rather upright growth pattern, has reliable and decent crops

Sun/Shade: Full sun (approx. 8-10 hours of sun daily)

Pollination: Self-pollinating, this variety will produce fruit without an apricot tree of a different variety but will produce more and better fruit if one is present
