I lost all the apricots, but mostly the late frost just decreased the amount of thinning I needed to do on the apples, pears, peaches, etc.  I guess we got lucky or the site is a good one.

Zone 8-ish

>The seventies-then-below-zero weather we had in late winter here killed the flower buds on all six varieties of our peaches.  Plums (myrobalan), apricots, apples, and pears all seem to be flowering more or less normally, but no idea yet about fruit set.
