Tardif de Bordaneil Apricot
Prunus armeniaca 'Tardif de Bordaneil', perhaps misnamed in Australia as Tardi de Bourdonel, is a French variety that helps extend the season, Tardif means late and this variety is perhaps the latest of the apricots we have, ripening from mid-summer. It has a deep orange to red colour, high sugar content and pleasant aroma. Ideal where late frosts are common.
