It seems like that far north apricots would be real long shot. Here in 
NM they rarely set fruit because of late frosts. Maybe once in 7 years. 
Of course further north your spring might not be as warm as ours.

I've never figured out a practical method for protecting tree flowers 
from late frost. I once set my temperature alarm so that if the 
temperature was going to go below freezing (usually 5:30 or 6 am) it 
would wake me up. My plan was to spray water on the trees. But when I 
got out there, the hose was already frozen solid!!
