My Experience

If you can’t commit to loving sweet or tart fruits more than apricots are for you! These stunningly golden hued fruits are slightly tart with a mellow sweet flavor and silky-smooth finish. They burst with juice.

Apricots are smaller in size and the perfect low cal snack. But they are good for much more. Top them on a salad or get baking, cooking, freezing, or canning these fruits. They also make an incredible sauce to pair with proteins.

My Story

The history of apricots is not so clear as its origin is linked to China, India, Armenia and Persia. What we do know about apricots is that they are delicious! They are the first fruit trees to bloom in Washington State each spring. Apricots are smaller in size than other stone fruits.

Many of Stemilt’s apricots are grown and certified organic and available under our Artisan Organics™ brand. All are grown in sunny central Washington!

My Story

Apricots are drupes, or stone fruits, and are closely related to cherries, peaches and nectarines. Apricots are golden yellow to almost orange, with an occasional red blush on their cheeks. The history of apricots is unclear, with sources linking its origin to China, India, Armenia and Persia. Apricots are the first fruit tree to bloom in Washington State, sometimes with snow still surrounding the area. Apricots are smaller in size than other stone fruits, and have a mellow sweet flavor, some tartness and a smooth finish. The majority of Stemilt's apricots are organic apricots. All of Stemilt's apricots are grown in Washington State.
