With their soft, velvety yellow-orange skin, and sweet, tender flesh, apricots are beloved all around the world.

When choosing a ripe apricot, look for one full in colour, that is firm with a slight give. For a storage trick, keep refrigerated in egg trays to protect the individual delicate fruits.
