There seems to be a lot of information telling me that apricot trees don't produce due to a late frost so I should plant late blooming trees. No one mentions which varieties are the late bloomers. Every site that sells trees list zones 5-9 which really tells me nothing regarding early or late bloomers. I live in the mountains of New Mexico that regularly gets late frosts. Which variety is the latest bloomer and would be the best for me to plant?
