Earl's Organic Produce
Blenheim apricots are only around for a few weeks. One of the key characteristics of the Blenheim is their green shoulders. Don’t shy away from the green tinge, as the fruit will have good flavor even if the fruit does not achieve full color. Cut open the Blenheim and you are rewarded by a deep orange flesh. A quick bite reveals a tangy flavor that is balanced out by the high sugar content. Read more in our latest blog. bit.ly/covetedblenheimapricot Dwelley Family Farms ... See MoreSee Less
