The Apricot fruit contains more sugar than most other backyard fruits, and dried apricots are delicious to eat during the winter when most fresh fruit is unavailable.. The trees are more cold hardy than peaches, and many apricot commercial cultivars are grafted on plum or peach rootstock to make the trees smaller. Widely grown in the U.S. the apricot trees are cold hardy for growing in zones 5 to 8 in relatively pH neutral soils of 6 to 7 and do not need a pollinator for fruit production, however, planting two different cultivars tends to encourage larger fruit size. This prehistoric fruit of antiquity may have originated in Persia or Armenia where the apricot kernels were used medicinally to reduce tumor size and inhibit cancer, however, the pits contain cyanogenic glycosides that can cause cyanide poisoning in large doses.
