- They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify PSG if you come across values that do not make sense.
- They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.

Three new stamps are being added to the medium value Fruit Trees of Canada series to coincide with new postal rates for USA, second step domestic and international rate stamps. The apricot resembles a small peach or a fuzzy yellow plum, but this Asian native is actually more closely related to the almond which shares its love of warm summers and a tendency to bloom early. Grown mostly in the Okanagan valley of British Columbia, the Westcot Apricot's soft orangy-yellow fruit can be eaten fresh or cured. Although it blooms earlier than most other fruit trees, it offers a better bud hardness than the others. Its large white flowers can be seen in very early spring and the Westcot is highly recommended by experts over other Canadian varieties.
