Irrigation is a major activity in arid and semi-arid regions for many crops, including orchards. The deficit irrigation is an alternative in the context of global warming. The crop studied was apricot, 'Orizont' cultivar, 16 years old, grafted on the 'Constanta 14' rootstock. The planting distance was 4 m between the rows and 5 m between trees in the row. Fruit size and weight are important qualities and yield traits in apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.), but the factors that influence fruit size and weight remain to be explored. The fruit biometrical characteristics was influenced by the irrigation regime, with the irrigated treatment with 100% AHI (T1) showing significantly (P <5%) higher differences versus T2 and T3. As with fruit biometrical characteristics, the fruit weight determined on the fruits of the studied treatments had the same trend. In this study, we investigated the impact of stress hydric on fruit size and weight at 'Orizont' apricot cultivar in 2019-2020 period.
