Rich and golden in colour, our apricots have a tangy, sweet flavour. Their natural sweetness and refreshing taste will leave you satisfied on a hot summer’s day.
The Okanagan’s unique climate is absolutely ideal for growing apricots.
Apricots are thought to be native to Armenia, dating back over 2,000 years. However, their native range may have also covered China and Japan. Alexander the Great brought apricots to Greece and General Lucullus brought them to Rome. Just visit a grocery store or a fruit stand in the summer, and you can bring them home too.
