Has anyone here tried apricots for them, I wondered if they might be too difficult to mash.

Baby food isn't the best thing for geckos in my opinion so please don't think I am suggesting to use it, but, some people do feed their geckos on it and this seems to cause the initial dislike of repashy, my male has been fed on baby food prior to me buying him so it's just going to take a little while to (hopefully) convert him, in the mean time I will have to feed him what he will eat

Mine will eat black and brown crickets so at least that's something

Do you know what your gecko was fed on prior to you buying him?

Someone has already said that figs do down well and I know pear and mango do but not sure about apricots, I wouldn't like to try mashing them either

Apricots are fine, if you cant mash them blend them instead.
Apricots have loads of vitamin C and vitamin A and also a little calcium too.

Nectarines and peaches are pretty similar- but when ripe you can mush these in your hand or with a fork much more easily if you don't have a blender.
Don't try and mush them up until they are very / overly ripe, the ripe fruit smells much better and is how they would most likely eat it in the wild.

Other fruits I have tried are pears, melon, mango, papaya, raspberries, plums
God knows who peels the mango's for them in the wild
