Golden. Fragrant. Sweet. These are three words that best describe apricots. And just lately, we can add one more adjective to that list—highly nutritious.
Aside from offering a unique flavour, the nutritional profile of apricots is also impressive. A lot of health benefits awaits those who include it in their diet regularly.
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.
Because there are all kinds of fruits to choose from in the market today, apricots are sometimes overlooked. But if you are going to take a closer look at this fruit, you would find a plethora of nutrition and health benefits other fruits won’t be able to match.
Apricots keep heart diseases away. Because apricots have significant amounts of Vitamin C, potassium, and carotenoids, regularly eating this fruit could help prevent heart disease and infections. It may even help regulate heartbeat, blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the body and promote healthy mucous membrane and skin.

Apricots contain xanthophylls, zeaxanthin and 13% of the daily recommended Vitamin A requirement that protects the retina of the eyes from age-related damage and AMRD (Age-Related Macular Disease).
