United States observe National Apricot Day every year on January 9th. Apricots are loved all over the united states. I love apricots. The apricot tree can grow to 45 feet if left unpruned. It produces white, pink or red blossoms and is a winter hardy tree. However, early frosts can damage the fruit. The apricot’s velvety flesh is similar to that of their relative the peach. The texture of the golden-orange fruit is more firm and the flavor more tart than its cousin. This versatile fruit is enjoyed fresh, canned and dried.
