I am so so so excited about my royal blenheim tree that I planted last
year. I planted it right before fruiting so I only “harvested” two
tiny apricots. More will come this year indeed.

A fresh, warm apricots directly from the tree is among my most
powerful flavor memories. My grandmother an apricots tree and a
tangerine tree on a flat terrace overlooking a deep arroyo in southern
California. My sister and cousins and I spent many afternoons gorging
on fruit when it was ripe.

So I am as excited about this tree for some of the warm meories as for
the sweet, rich fruit.
