My Aprium Tree Is Producing Very Few Leaf Shoots

My tree is about 4 or 5 years old and until now has been doing beautifully. I got fruit in the third year and last year got a lot of delicious fruit with very little pruning. This year I pruned a bit more extensively and now my tree is not putting out leaves. I think there are three small shoots. Did I prune too late? (Dec. I think)


Here is a rather extensive article on fruit tree pruning from UC Davis: http://homeorchard.ucdavis.edu/8057.pdf
You'll note that they recommend summer pruning for apricot trees in California to prevent eutypa dieback; I wonder if this is what happened to your tree. You might want to consult with the Extension Service to get their analysis and recommendations; this link will help you locate one: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/

Aprium Trees Have No Fruit This Year

Neither of my Aprium trees has any fruit this year but they have in the past. What would cause these trees to stop bearing?

What variety of aprium do you have? Is it a low chill or high chill variety? I am wondering if this is due to them not getting enough chill these past few seasons.

Did your aprium trees even bloom? Do the trees look healthy? Any signs of disease, abnormalities or insect pest infestations? Has anything changed in their care with regards to watering or fertilizing?
