Our organic apricots have an aromatic, extremely fruity-sweet taste. The colouring ranges from a rich golden orange to light brown. They have a soft consistency and the fruit flesh is very soft and very juicy.
They normally dry out a little before the season finishes, and the colour darkens. This is a sign of quality, as it is proof that the apricots were not treated with sulphur. That’s why we store the apricots at the optimal temperature of +2 and +6 degrees Celsius, so product freshness and quality are retained for longer.
Dried apricots contain the same nutrients as fresh apricots, in a concentrated form. Apricots are known for their high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron and potassium [1 and 2].That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.
Origin and Production:
We source our normal organic apricots from Turkey, which grows most of the global apricot crop (approx. 95%). Turkey usually has excellent climatic conditions and the right temperatures for growing apricots. Cold spells can occur there, however. If this happens when the trees are in blossom (in April), the entire global market is affected immediately, as the harvest will be much smaller than usual. This naturally has a knock-on effect on current prices. As a supplier with close contacts to the producers, we guarantee an optimal assessment of market conditions and the amounts available.
After harvesting, the apricots are washed, pitted and then gently dried using solar energy. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.
The apricots are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
