They say you cannot please everyone. Except Apricot. Cultivated in temperate regions, apricot is considered as one of the most delicious types of fruit; its unique aroma and flavour combined with durability are responsible for its large geographical dispersion.
For thousands of years, apricots have grown on the mountains of Central Asia and China. In Europe, there are traces of apricots dating back to over 2000 years.
Apricot trees like a continental and temperate climate preferring the Mediterranean climate. They can also grow in a subtropical climate, but they will require more attention, since they are more prone to disease and pestilence. Apricot cultivation spread from China to Persia and was brought to Europe by Alexander the Great.
Due to it having highly developed in Armenia, the Romans called it malum armeniacum (Armenian apple). Although it was cultivated by Greeks and Romans, apricot spread through the whole Mediterranean basin by the hands of the Arabs.
The apricot has great nutritional value. It is particularly rich in vitamin A, but it also comprises other vitamins, sugar, mineral salt, and many trace elements.
