Last year I had the apricot tree pruned. I read everywhere that apricot trees should not be pruned. But I could not reach the upper branches and my friends are getting old too. So I said, que sera, sera. And this year the amount and size of the apricots is incredible. I did not take a picture of the apricot tree in bloom because I have several such pictures. But the tree is a wonder. I´m looking forward for my Christmas presents to everyone. I already have the recycled jars that I have been collecting from all my friends and family. I placed an old picture of my tree.

@infatuatedbby Many "experts" have told me to cut it. But my grandsons forbid me to do it as they all learned to climb trees here.

I guess the tree is putting all its energies into less fruit. Or maybe you scared it into thinking you were going to cut it down. :)

It has a lot of fruit, but the branches are smaller.

They will be glorious! I can´t wait for them to get ripe as I don´t like to be making jams the day before Christmas.

That is a big apricot tree. It must make a good shade when in full bloom

It does. I was remembering after I posted this and my eldest daughter (age 26) played under the shadow of this apricot when it was a young tree.
