Q.Apricot and nectarine trees
3 years ago I purchased 3 year old fruit trees so they are about 6-7 years old and I have not gotten a single fruit from either of them. Coming to think of it, neither has my pomegranate tree. What am I doing wrong??

I suspect water deficit and/or nutrient deficiency. Soil fertility and water management are vital for plant health, flowering and fruit development.
Water a wide area not just near the tree trunk, water the entire area of the absorbing root zone which spreads as far as the foliar canopy and more. Water deeply to wet the soil a minimum of six inches, preferably to 10 - 12 inches.
Fertilize spring and summer with a slow release complete organic fertilizer. And mulch the soil surface.
Pruning also can be a factor. Here is more information:
