Apriums

Apriums look similar to an apricot but they are a hybrid of approximately 75% apricot and 25% plum. They have a very sweet flavor and are only available for a short time during the early stone fruit season. We expect apriums from Burkart Farms in Dinuba, CA, to continue for the next 2-3 weeks. Don’t miss out on this special fruit.

There is no hard and fast rule on how to know when stone fruit is ripe and ready to eat.  This applies to all stone fruit whether it is a plum, apricot, peach or nectarine. The difference from one day to the next can be the difference between ripe and overripe. The best advice we at Earl’s can give is to try eating your fruit on different days and experiment by trial and error.  Store the pieces of stone fruit you plan to eat within a few days on a natural cotton cloth to allow the air to circulate and to prevent bruising. In very warm weather the fruit will ripen more quickly so be sure to check your fruit each day. If you need to refrigerate your stone fruit let it reach room temperature first to get the fullest flavor.
