Apricot is a fruit that belongs to the Prunus family, which also includes peaches, plums, and cherries. It is a small, yellow to orange-colored fruit that is typically round or oval-shaped with a small indentation on one end. Apricots are known for their sweet, juicy flavor and slightly tangy taste. They are often eaten fresh, dried, or used in recipes for jams, jellies, and baked goods. Apricots are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. They are also low in calories and fat, making them a healthy addition to a balanced diet. Apricots are typically in season during the summer months, but can be found year-round in some regions.
