Where to find Apricorns

You can find Apricorns all over the Isle of Armor in Pokémon Sword and Shield. The easiest way to collect them is to shake the berry trees on the island. Each time you shake a tree, berries or Apricorns will fall out of it. If you shake the tree too many times, however, a Pokémon will fall out and attack you. That Pokémon will take some or all of the berries or Apricorns that fell. Be careful not to shake the tree too much, then, or you risk losing Apricorns.

You can also get Apricorns from a woman who appears randomly on the island. She will offer you Apricorns for 100 Watts. Lastly, you can get pick them up from the ground. Look for the signature sparkle on the ground that indicates a hidden item is there and grab it to see what it is.
