Organic Apricots

Fresh Apricots with their velvety-fuzzed skins are prized for their distinctive tasting orange flesh that ranges from slightly tangy to richly sweet. Apricots have a texture that is slightly less juicy than a plum, but the rich flavor always intensifies when baked or dehydrated. When Apricots are running sweet, I love ‘em as a satisfying, high fiber snack.

Select Apricots without cuts, punctures or large bruises. The fruit should be free from green color (a sign of under-ripe) and wrinkled skin (a sign of over-ripe).

Apricot Tips

  • Select Apricots without cuts, punctures or large bruises. The fruit should be free from green color (a sign of under-ripe) and wrinkled skin (a sign of over-ripe).
  • Red blush on the skin varies from variety to variety. Apricots do not get redder after being picked.
  • Store fresh Apricots in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat them. Be gentle! It is a tender fruit.
  • If you want the fruit a little softer, set your Apricots on the counter for a day or two at room temperature.
