Nutrition Facts >

How to Select, Store and Handle Apricots

Look for firm, fragrant fruit without bruising.

}

Ripe apricots are soft to the touch and have limited shelf life. You should eat them as soon as possible.

Don’t buy hard apricots with a green tinge. They will not ripen.

Apricots will continue to ripen if left at room temperature in a paper bag. Adding an apple or banana will accelerate the ripening process.

TRADE

Merchandising

  • Display only ready-to-eat firm, juicy apricots.
  • If the fruit is hard or a bit green, its flavor isn’t completely developed
  • Avoid rough handling of apricots, and over-stacking of cases on display
  • Monitor the apricots on display closely, as they ripen quickly
