APRICOTS are grown in this State mainly for the fresh fruit market. Varieties commonly grown include Newcastle Early, Royal, Ouillins Early, Blenheim, Moorpark, Trevatt and Tilton.
In some orchards the trees are regularly pruned, but in others they are left unpruned. Unpruned trees are given some renovation pruning from time to time.
