Apricot Trees

Apricot

Zone Las Vegas, NV | Hillary1464 added on May 21, 2016 | Answered

An apricot tree was planted in my yard in Las Vegas almost 9 years ago. The tree is on a drip system. We have plenty of apricots each year and the flavor is fine, but the flesh of the fruit is a bit fibrous and spiny. Would increased watering of the tree help to make the flesh smoother?
