Apricot Day

Apricot Day

Not many people know that just three apricots will provide a person with a third of your daily beta carotene needs. This is just one of the benefits of this fruit that are celebrated on Apricot Day! Apricots are also rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and fibre.

Apricots have been grown by humans for around 4,000 years. Originally from China, these nutritious stone fruits migrated west and now around 95% of the world’s apricots are grown in California.

To celebrate Apricot Day, a good idea is to cook a dish like chicken tagine with apricots and almonds. These little orange fruits go well in both savoury and sweet recipes, and many people are familiar with them in flans and pastries. Apricots are available in dried and canned form too, so they can deliver their benefits all year round, not just on Apricot Day.
