National Apricot Day

Apricot lovers from all over the United States observe National Apricot Day every year on January 9th.

The apricot's velvety flesh is similar to that of their relative the peach. The texture and flavor of the golden-orange fruit is more firm and tart, though. This versatile fruit is enjoyed fresh, canned and dried.

Apricots are found the world over, but originated in northeastern China near the Russian border in ancient times and was later introduced to Europe and Armenia. The apricot found its way to North American when English colonists settled in Virginia. The fruit was brought further west by Spanish explorers and missionaries where the fruit is grown commercially today.
