Hi can someone  tell me what kind of tree is that because i thought was apricot or its another variety of apricot.

Assuming the tree is what I think it is, common name being japanese apricot aka chinese plum aka 'Ume' good old Latin never goes a miss - look for 'Prunus mume' the fruits are edible, you can find them on ebay but watch out - they are sour.

I don't have an Ume now, but I did 20 years ago. The flower buds were round, and much closer together.  The growth was vertical.  It would bloom in December/January in Atlanta.

Neither of the trees in this thread look like Ume to me, but I could be mistaken.
