Burkart Stone Fruit Is Sizing Up

When we last looked at the Burkart stone fruit in mid-April, the fruit had just started to form on the trees. Now just a few weeks out from the first picking we can see how the stone fruit is sizing up nicely. Richard Burkart grows a variety of yellow and white peaches and nectarines, plums and apriums on 65 acres in Dinuba, California, about 4 hours south of San Francisco.

First up in the next week or two is the aprium, which looks similar to an apricot but is a hybrid of approximately 75% apricot and 25% plum. It has a very sweet flavor and is only available for a short time during the early stone fruit season.
