Apricots are a small, fragrant variety of stone fruit with a smooth, sweet flavour and velvety skin, closely related to Peaches. Apricots can be eaten raw as a delicious summer snack, used in savoury dishes like salads or tagines, or made into desserts. There are many different varieties of apricot, however in Australia, apricots are not sold by variety. Some of the different varieties include Moorpark, Earlicot, and Supergold.

Nutritional Benefits

Apricots contain a number of potent antioxidants and nutrients, including vitamin A (from beta-carotene) and vitamin C. They’re also a good source of dietary fibre.

Storage

If your apricots are not quite ripe, they will continue to ripen if left at room temperature in a paper bag, away from sunlight. Check the ripening progress often as they quickly deteriorate. Once ripened, store for up to 2-3 days in the refrigerator – they are best consumed as soon as possible, as they do not keep long once ripe!
