What is it?

When ripe, apricots have a golden orange color like a sunset in the summer. It has a mild, sweet taste with a hint of tartness much like plums. It has a velvety surface. This stone fruit is actually a drupe with a single pit located at the centre of a crunchy flesh.

Apricots, which have an Asian origin, grow on small, deciduous trees that thrive in well-drained sloping soils. During the springtime, apricot trees produce beautiful white-pink flowers. Close relatives of apricots include nectarine, plums, and peaches.

Apricots have a long history—about 4,000 years ago on the mountain slopes of China where it was an important food crop. But it was already a well-known fruit in Greece even as far back as 60BC. It was the Greeks who gave apricots the tag name the “golden eggs of the sun” and brought it to Armenia, the Mediterranean, and Europe. But it was the Spanish explorers who brought apricots to the US in the 1700s.

Today, there are many countries that commercially produce apricots aside from China, Spain, and Greece. There's New Zealand, South America, Turkey, France, Russia, USA, Italy, Syria, and Iran.
