Apricot season lasts less than two months, from about mid-May to early July, so we recommend getting your fill of apricot while you can!
What to look for: Seek out local fruit, for the best flavor, and look for fruit that are deep orange, fairly plump, and soft enough to yield to gentle pressure. But they shouldn’t be mushy.
How to store apricots: If unripe, place apricots in a paper bag at room temperature for one to two days so the ripening process will continue. Fully ripe apricots should be used or eaten immediately; otherwise, store them in your refrigerator for up to one week maximum.
