I would like to plant a Peach tree and an apricot tree. Can you recommend some varieties that would groll well in Maryland? Thank you.

Here is our website on tree fruits and recommended varieties. Select the most disease resistant varieties. In general, apricots are the first fruit trees to bloom in the spring and this usually results in frost damage to the flowers which precludes any fruit production.
