Picture yourself walking at the Unterinnerhof in South Tyrol, Italy with blossoming apricot trees flowering above you before the fruit begins to appear. The months of March or April are the prime months when the white and pink coloring of the flowers begin to open making a beautiful picture for your scrap book or your wall.
Italy has become the main producers of the apricot and the fields at Unterinnerof in South Tyrol, Italy must be seen when each tree is full blossom. Flowers fill the fields and once the flowers have run their course and died off, a mass production of apricots grows on each tree.
The apricot trees can grow anywhere between about four and six meters and some of these trees will be able to produce an excellent crop of apricots for forty years. Many of the fruit trees such as the plum, peach and cherry have very similar flowers when each tree is in blossom but the difference is in the type of fruit that they grow.
If you are in South Tyrol, Italy during the spring months, do not miss the field of Apricot trees at Unterinnerhof with flowers exploding everywhere. Be sure to capture a picture or two as the sight of all these trees is breathtaking. If you miss the spring show, try one of the delicious fruits that grow here and you will wonder why you have not eaten more apricots.
