The origins of the apricot have been much debated. Depending on who you ask, its center of origin and domestication could be in Armenia, India, or even China. Along with nectarines and peaches, they all belong to the same Prunus family of fruit trees and they’re all known for their effervescent sweetness. But what makes apricots unique is that their rich, sugary flavor is balanced with strong undertones of musky tartness. Whether you like yours fresh or dried, our Apricot Natural Flavor is a wonderful way to enjoy this golden spring fruit.
