‘Estrella’ and ‘Sublime’ are mid–early ripening apricot cultivars (Prunus armeniaca L.) with optimal productivity levels, excellent fruit quality, and an attractive color. Although ‘Estrella’ and ‘Sublime’ are both self-incompatible, they are intercompatible cultivars. Bloom dates are very coincident and they can be planted together for successful pollination. Their fruits have excellent organoleptic characteristics, and both cultivars have a free stone and an orange skin ground color, extensive red blush, and orange flesh color, which make them very attractive.
