Apricots

Prunus armeniaca

An apricot is the fruit or the name of the tree that bears the fruit. The fruit is yellow to orange, often tinged red on the side most exposed to the sun.

Description

The skin is often velvety. The single seed is enclosed in a hard stony shell, often called a "stone".

A limiting factor in apricot culture is spring frosts: trees tend to flower very early, meaning spring frost can kill the flowers.
The apricot is now the third most cultivated fruit in France.
The apricot season is very short, that's why producers are looking to develop new varieties and to extend the season.

Varieties: Solédane, Sylred, Pinkcot, Kioto, Bergarouge, Harogem, Bergeron, Farbaly, Farely…
