A perfectly ripe apricot eaten raw is a very fine thing. However, their fragrant sweetness also makes them perfect for use in puddings, crumbles and cakes.
Fresh apricots should be firm, brightly coloured and with a velvety smooth skin – they’ll yield slightly when you squeeze them. Eat at room temperature, for flavour.
Store at room temperature until ripe, then you can keep in the fridge for a day or two. Wash before eating.
We import our apricots from France and Spain from late May to July.
Country of origin
Grown in Spain.
Our apricots are grown as class II at a minimum. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
