Today's Reason to Celebrate

January 9, 2015 is

National Apricot Day

Celebrate National Apricot Day! Did you know that the word "apricot" means "precious" in Latin? Apricots ripen earlier than most summer fruits, making them a precious commodity every spring.

The apricot tree emerged in China more than 4,000 years ago and eventually made its way across Asia to the Mediterranean. Centuries later, Spanish explorers introduced the apricot to the New World and planted the trees all over the west coast. Today, farmers in California’s San Joaquin Valley produce 95% of the apricots grown in the United States.

Whether you prefer them fresh, broiled, grilled, or poached, enjoy an apricot today in honor of the occasion! Happy National Apricot Day!
