Q.Apricot Fruit Not Growing

Anonymous added on April 24, 2014 | Answered

I have a 5-year-old apricot tree. There were about two lbs of fruit last year with normal size. It bloomed beautifully this spring, then fruit has been all over the tree. However, fruit size has not changed since one month ago. What shold I do to make them grow larger? They are the size of dimes.

You will want to thin the fruit out a bit when the fruit starts to develop so that there is at least 4 inches (10 cm) between each fruit. This will result in bigger and better fruit. Fertilizing now would be good to help support the fruit that will be developing. Apricots normally do best with a light pruning after they have bloomed.
