      Facts about Apricots

      Did You Know?

      The apricot is actually a member of the rose family.

      How to Choose:

      Look for a rich orange-colored fruit that is slightly soft. If the skin is wrinkled, though, avoid it, as it is already over-ripe.

      Storing Wisdom:

      If you’ve purchased just before prime ripeness, keep at room temperature or store in a paper bag to allow fruit to ripen. If the fruit is already ripe, keep it in the refrigerator in a sealed plastic bag or container to prevent spoiling.
