Photo: Apricot Tree Roxburgh

Brilliant colored apricots are ready to be picked on this apricot tree in Roxburgh, New Zealand.

The region of Roxburgh in Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand has hot summers and cold winters which are ideal for an apricot tree to flourish. Certain areas in New Zealand cannot grow an apricot tree because of the climatic temperatures but Roxburgh and Alexandra are a few of the districts of New Zealand which have no problem with this type of fruit tree.

Roxburgh and Alexandra have approximately 1600 acres where an apricot tree crop produces about 80 percent of New Zealand's total harvest of apricots. There is some local processing but much of the apricot tree fruit is distributed to markets of the South Island.

The famous Roxburgh red apricot tree was first planted in 1866 by a man named Joseph Tamblyn who bought a few trees from a passing swagman.
