Apricot Fruit Not Ripening Evenly

Anonymous added on January 2, 2011 | Answered

Our apricot tree bears lots of fruit but there seems to be a problem with the ripening of the fruit. If I wait until the fruit is a nice golden color, what happens is that half the fruit will be too soft. If I pick the fruit with it half ripe and half green, then some of it will be green instead of a golden color for the table. We live in the Melbourne suburb of East Oakleigh.
