Apricot is a hardy, medium-sized deciduous tree. The fruits are often categorised as ‘stone fruits’ because of the stony seeds. The leaves are broad and roundish, with a pointed apex. The fruit ripens by the end of July to mid-August, according to variety. It is a drupe with a thin outer, downy skin enclosing the yellow flesh. Apricot oil closely resembles the oil of almonds and is frequently used in cosmetics. Apricots can be consumed in both fresh and dried forms. It is rich in dietary fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
