A sweet fruit with a mysterious origin
Did you know that apricot is one of the oldest cultivated fruits? The world famous fruit was first brought to Europe from Persia as early as 300 BC, but its origins have not been fully elucidated. Thousands of years ago in China, apricots were thought to have aphrodisiac qualities. The origins of the apricot are also revealed by its Latin name, Prunus Armeniaca (“Armenian plum”), although the apricot tree is also said to have once been native to what is now Iran and to Turkey. One thing is clear, however: since time immemorial, this yellow-red fruit has been held to have important health properties. It is also delicious: apricots are traditionally made into jam, dried or preserved in sugar syrup.
This robust tree grows up to 10 metres high, with small oval leaves. Apricot trees are now grown in many countries with moderately warm climates and soils. The world popular stone fruit belongs to the rose family. The flowers are bright white to delicate pink and resemble cherry blossom. The ripe fruits are harvested as early as the end of May.
