Various fruit deformities or fruit splitting along the suture during ripening, may occur as a result of irregularity or disturbances in carpel joining.
Histological analyses in the first stages of ovule primordium differentiation, as well as at full bloom period, indicate that there are different irregularities in the process of apricot carpel joining, all of which may be classified in three groups.
In all three groups of ovary, from which these fruits are formed, there are normally developed ovules with formed embryo sacs.
