History: The Montrose parent tree was discovered growing in Montrose, California, by Lloyd Rosenvold after purchasing the land in 1952. He was surprised to find a large apricot tree growing quite tall on a hill in an area where winters could be quite cold. , but the tree still produced large harvests of excellent fruit. When he moved to Idaho in 1966, Rosenvold took seeds from this tree's apricots to see how they would perform in an even colder climate. The best of these trees he named 'Montrose.'

Why we grow it: Montrose produces medium to large sized apricots that are yellow with a pleasant redness. They have a great sweet flavor and even the pit is edible, resembling an almond. Most importantly to us, these trees are quite hardy and late flowering, making them more reliable in our climate compared to other varieties.
