The Goldstrike apricot has large and firm
fruit. The fruit is round to slightly oval
and is very large when well-thinned. The
skin is a light-orange color and slightly
glossy. A reddish blush covers up to 20% of
the side that is exposed to the sun. The
flesh is light orange, firm, meaty and
moderately juicy. Some acidity is associated
with the skin.
The pit is medium-large and free from the
flesh. Goldstrike is not suitable for
canning. Goldstrike trees bloom heavily but
fruit set is often moderate to light under
natural pollination. This apricot has
excellent eating quality. It will
cross-pollinate with the Goldbar.
