Polonais is a cold-hardy apricot, which ripens in the middle of the apricot season - early July. The fruits are orange, with an orange flesh, and can be used for eating fresh or in the kitchen.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.

If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Polonais is a good choice for more northerly climates as it is disease-resistant and tolerates cool climates, and the blossom has some frost-resistance. The tree itself is exceptionally cold-hardy, perhaps the most cold-hardy of all apricot varieties. Conversely, it is not a good choice for the traditional apricot-growing regions of southern Europe.
It flowers fairly late in the apricot blossom season, which may help it to avoid early frosts.
The Polonais apricot is also often known as Orange de Provence. It is assumed to be a seedling variety originating from Poland.
