Apricots
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Apricot is a relative of the peach and is the first summer fruit to ripen. It's smaller and has an oval pit that falls out easily when the fruit is halved.
Apricots originally came from China.

Look for plump, golden-orange apricots and avoid any that are either pale yellow, greenish-yellow, very firm, shrivelled or bruised. Apricots that are soft-ripe have the best flavour, but they must be eaten immediately.

Apricots will ripen at room temperature. To help them ripen, place them in a paper bag with an apple. When they yield to gentle pressure, they are ready to eat.
