Recommended for locations beyond the usual range of apricot cultivation, having demonstrated hardiness in north central states. Fruits rather small compared to commercial varieties, deep yellow, orange cheek; flesh yellow, freestone, sweet and juicy. Wood and bud hardy. A seedling selected by Bob Purvis, apricot tester for North American Fruit Explorers, then living in Minnesota where it was trialed. Not for commercial planting, but for home orchard in Great Lakes and Midwest. Late July. 1200 hours. On Myro 29c.
