Similarly one may ask, why is my apricot tree not fruiting?
If an apricot tree receives too little or too much water at bloom time or while the fruit is maturing, this can result in no apricots on the tree. A lack of nutrients, like phosphorus, can also be the cause of an apricot tree not fruiting. Monitoring water and fertilizer can help to correct this.
Additionally, how do you hand pollinate apricot trees? Hand-pollination increases yields, over several days - ideally around noon on a dry, sunny day - using a soft artist's brush or a cotton wool bud. Lightly mist the tree with water to ensure that the pollen sticks but so the flowers dry out before dark.
