Why would you want this tree? Apricot pollinator of choice, tasty fruit

Developed by the Agriculture Canada Research Station in Morden Manitoba in 1937, Scout is a reliable producer on its own but is more productive with a cross pollinator. The fruit is a golden, juicy, freestone, that ripens in early August. The tree is disease resistant and grows to about 15 feet tall in northern Alberta. It not quite as hardy as Westcot, so it needs a more sheltered location. The fruit is 4-5 cm in length and is golden yellow in colour and excellent for jams, jellies and preserves but can be messy if the fruit drops on the driveway or sidewalk.

The Scout Apricot produces a myriad of non-fragrant pink flowers in early May before the leaves come out. The green foliage is nondescript and the leaves turn poplar yellow in the fall.
The tree needs to be grown in full sunlight and does best in sandy loam soils and cannot tolerate standing water.
