Aprisali is a cross between a plum and an apricot. We list it in our apricots category since it will cross-pollinate with other apricots. Being self-fertile it can also be grown on its own if necessary.

Aprisali has more in common with apricots than plums, but the crimson-colour of the fruits is a reminder of the plum ancestry, and the reddish-flesh also has a plum-like flavour.

Aprisali should be ready to pick in July in the UK.

How to grow

Aprisali is best treated as an apricot rather than a plum when it comes to growing characteristics. That means, like all apricots, it needs to be planted in full sun, and it prefers a dry warm climate.

History

Apriums are derived from plumcots (a Japanese plum - Prunus salicina - crossed with an apricot - Prunus armeniaca) which are then further crossed with apricots. They are 3/4 apricot and 1/4 plum. They are not "genetically modified", and all belong to the genus Prunus, which has a natural tendency to hybridise in the wild. However all commercially available apriums are the result of university-led breeding programmes rather than wild seedlings.
