Do apricot trees ever yield fruit after a period of not producing?

Ector County Texas

Expert Response

Apricots have a short chilling hour requirement so most years apricots flower during the winter and then a freeze kills the flower buds, flowers or fruit.

This year, the mild winter has apricots flowering and setting fruit. Nice!!! Enjoy!!!
