Apricot is a medium-sized deciduous tree that grows best in well-drained mountain slope soils. During the spring, it bears plenty of beautiful pinkish-white flowers that attract bees.
The fruits have almost uniform size, 4-5 cm in diameter, and weigh about 35 g. In structure; apricot is a drupe, consisting of a centrally located single pit surrounded by crunchy, aromatic edible flesh. The seed enclosed in a hard stony shell often called as “stone.”
Fresh, ripe apricots have a sweet flavor similar to plums.
