My apricots have just started to turn color.  How long is it likely  
to take until they are ripe?  We are about to go away on vacation for  
about 2 weeks, and if they are likely to be fully ripe before we  
return, I will encourage the neighbors to take them.  (In the hopes  
that the local wild-life doesn't discover they are good to eat, as  
well as to prevent waste.)  If not, we will look for them when we get  
home.   I think the neighbor is likely to pick them under-ripe if we  
encourage him to harvest them.
