Planting fruit trees

Zone 46040 | Berry Farmer added on March 30, 2018 | Answered

I have 2 established peach trees and just bought my first apricot tree. I am wanting to plant it close, in the orchard, but don't want to jeopardize the apricot fruit by making peachcots. Should I worry or maybe plant it in another area alone?

If they cross pollinate, you will only see the results in the next seeds fruits. So as long as you are not planting the seeds from them, then there is not a risk of the fruit being changed. You are safe to plant it near your other trees.
