Robada is a large-fruited apricot. The orange fruits are usually flushed with red, and will ripen in the middle / late July in the UK.

Robada is one of the best apricots for spring blossom - the flowers are a little bit larger than most, and the bright white petals retain a hint of pink veins.

How to grow

Robada is a hardy apricot, suitable for most situations - but like all apricots it does need warmth, shelter, and is best planted in full sun.
