Apricots are a tangy and delicious sign that summer has arrived and remains available fresh throughout the season. Any apricots seen fresh in stores outside of the summer season are likely imports from America. Apricots are orange colored fruits full of beta-carotene and fiber. Relatives to peaches, apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh, not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Some describe their flavor as almost musky, with a faint tartness that lies somewhere between a peach and a plum.
From the same family as peaches, apricots are a beautiful looking, feeling and tasting fruit. With bright orange skin and velvet-like skin.
