Apricots are a type of stone fruit - they have a hard seed-containing pit in the center that resembles a stone. Apricots are similar to peaches in flavor and appearance. Yet, while peaches are fuzzy, apricots are smooth.

Apricots are also in the same family as almonds, plums, cherries, and roses. The trees are amazingly long-lived, some reaching 100 years or more.

Originally from China, apricots are now grown and enjoyed all over the world. Apricots are eaten fresh, dried, or used to make jellies and jams.
