Introduction

The Samourai Apricot, originating from France, is a protected apricot variety with a vibrant orange skin, and a sweet, aromatic taste.

History

Apricot is believed to be originated from areas of Eurasia, Central Asia, and China. There is evidence that apricots were cultured during ancient times in Armenia, and other sources suggested that they were cultured in India around 3000 BC. Additionally, apricots were cultured in Persia and were introduced in ancient Greece by Alexander the Great. In the 17th century, English settlers brought the apricot to the English colonies in the New World. 

Regions

Nowadays, apricots are produced in many countries around the globe. The most significant producer by volume is Turkey, followed by Iran, Uzbekistan, Algeria, Italy, Pakistan, France, Morocco, Spain, and Egypt.  

Flavours & Texture

In terms of taste, apricots taste both sweet and tart. Their flesh is usually firm and not very juicy with a grainy, smooth texture. The Samourai apricot is sweet and aromatic.

Preparation

Remove pits by running a paring knife around the fruit following its natural seam, then gently twist the halves apart, and pop out the kernel. You can eat it raw, use it a fruit salad, and make juice or smoothies.
