I have a question. I know the apricots on my tree are not ripe right now, but how can you tell when they are? I would like to know this in advance so I dont pick them too early. Here is a picture of them now.
I had to climb the tree to get this picture. They are very hard and are getting bigger every day. They are starting to turn red on some apricots.
Any help will be appreciated.

|They will turn orange and get soft.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|Some ways to tell if the fruit is ripe :
1:When you very lightly tug it from the tree and it easily comes off , almost like the tree is offering it to you.
2: look down , usually the ripest are the ones on the ground . As long as you get them early without damage .
I also recommend trimming high hard to reach branches and encourage lower side branches that are easier to get too.
