Apricot Fruit

Anonymous added on June 4, 2011 | Answered

My apricot tree has a lot of fruit, too much fruit, and most of them are split in several places with grey areas on them. Any help on the cause and prevention would be greatly appreciated.

The grey could be a sign of fungal growth due to the over abundance of fruits, which can limit air circulation. Thinning the tree early on will help with this. In the mean time, treat with a fungicide, such as neem oil. These articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/apricots/apricot-tree-growing.htm
