Apricots Won’t Ripen on Tree
I have a full tree of apricots every year but they don't ripen. They are big and beautiful but just stay green.

It could be a chilling issue. Like peach trees, if apricots get too little chilling in the winter, the fruits it produces may not develop properly or ripen as they're supposed to.
