Bongo Ume Apricot - Prunus mume
On a mild day in winter, the busy hum of honey bees working this fragrant tree of its nectar, distinguishes this ornamental flowering-fruiting Ume apricot from other prunus species. The fruit of Bongo apricot is larger than most winter flowering apricots, up to 2 inches. Ripening in early summer the fruits are usually pickled into umboshi plum paste. Bongo has masses of single pinkish-white flowers, similar to dessert apricots. Group with Cornielian Cherry and Witch Hazel for a colorful display in Feburary in Virginia. Space 14' circle, prune to an open vase form. Tree is spreading and productive. Will grow to 15' and usually pruned to an 8-10 foot height. Zones 6-9
