About This Food

Description

Apricots are cousins of the peach and arrived in California with the Spanish in the eighteenth century.

These succulent summer beauties get their golden hue from disease-fighting carotenoids and are a favorite of the long-living Hunza people.

Selecting & Storing

Because they`re highly perishable and seasonal, 90 percent of the fresh apricots are marketed in June and July. When buying apricots, select plump, reasonably firm fruit with a uniform color. Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 5 days. If you buy fresh apricots that are not quite ripe, store them in a paper bag at room temperature, away from heat or direct sunlight, for two to three days. Don`t wash the fruits until you`re ready to eat them. Depending on size, there are 8 to 12 apricots per pound.
