Default Lecture on growing Apricots in cold climates

wrote in message ...
apricots do fine in zone 5.

They'll survive and grow well but won't bear much fruit without a lot
of help.

The fruit I do get is superb, with a much richer, more complex flavor
than any store bought apricot, but I don't expect more than a handful
each year.

Here in the WV mountains we frequently have late hard freezes as well
as frosts. I'm not interested in adopting Florida citrus protection
methods to increase yield.
