Tartly sweet and tender, our sun-dried extra fancy apricots are most delicious. All apricots used for drying are left on the tree until golden ripe and then handpicked. Taken straight from the orchards to the drying yard, the fruit is washed, pitted and halved. A light sulfuring process helps preserve nutrients and color.
After several days of basking in the sun, the apricots are sorted and packed; only the best are used for the gifts we ship for you.
It takes 6 pounds of fully tree-ripened, hand-picked fresh fruit to make one pound of dried apricots. Only the water is removed, so what remains is highly concentrated flavor, nutrients and fiber content. They're never out of season, so you can share these amazing little morsels all year round.
