I'm up in the hills at 2000 ft above sea level, in zone 9B.
I've got a lot of fruit trees (apples are doing great this year!) including peaches and plums. I've got at least 3 apricot trees that didn't even flower this year, and of course no fruit either. Didn't fruit last year either. They look good, they've had good growth this spring/summer...
In addition, my one more mature peach (maybe 12ft tall, trunk maybe 2.5" in diameter, also didn't really flower or fruit. (a new young peach did great). I do have Peach Leaf Curl, but have never seen that on the apricots.
So, any ideas? I think I did a decent job mulching, and I have drip irrigation on as well. (again, apples, figs, plums all doing super great...so I'm doing some stuff right)
Probably the better question is whether I should go hard on pruning this winter or go light.
I love apricots, and haven't had a good harvest in quite some time.
