Apricots have golden orange and plump, not too soft and not too hard. Apricots that are soft and ripe will have the best flavor.
Apricot is grown in many parts of Pakistan including the uplands of Baluchistan Province; Parachinar, Hangu, Chitral, Swat, and Hazara Districts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province; Pothwar and Murree Hills in Punjab Province; northern Kashmir; and Gilgit, Chilas, and Baltistan in Gilgit-Baltistan.
These fragrant, sweet fruits are in season from May to September. A relative of the peach, nectarine, plum and cherry, apricots are fragrant, with a soft, velvety skin that ranges from pale yellow to deep orange.
