What is Apricot?
Apricots grow on trees and are harvested for consumption close to, or at their ripening point. They look a lot like miniature peaches, with a more golden hue and a soft, slightly fuzzy skin. The flavor of the soft and firm, golden flesh is gentle and sweet, though not overly saccharine and with a pleasant tartness. Apricots are eaten fresh, or dried and commonly used in jams and desserts.
