Apricots are those beautifully orange colored fruits full of beta-carotene and fiber that are one of the first signs of summer. Apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh: not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Some people think of the flavor as being somewhere between a peach and a plum, fruits to which they're closely related.

How to store:

•       Store ripe apricots at room temperature.
•       While it is tempting to hold them in the refrigerator, they will have a much better flavor if they are not chilled.
