Apricots

ApricotsSeason: Early July

Pricing: Unfortunately, our apricot crop did not survive the spring freeze, so there will be no apricot harvest in 2016.

Apricots are available in our market and pick-your-own. They ripen around July 4th and can be eaten fresh, used in sweet and savory recipes, frozen and dried.

Picking Tips:

They are ready to pick when they change from green-yellow to an intense yellow. They will not be soft (otherwise they start to drop). Pick them in a 5-quart buckets. Keep them at room temperature to ripen. Apricots will continue to ripen after they are picked.
