Then, do peaches and apricots taste the same?
Apricots and peaches are stone fruits that bear similar coloring and shapes but differ in size and flavor. Peaches are sweeter and juicier, whereas apricots have a slightly tart flavor. Whichever you choose, both are excellent sources of many nutrients and can be incorporated into many dishes, desserts, and jams.
Likewise, how can you tell if an apricot is bad? Apricots that are spoiling will typically become very soft, develop dark spots and start to ooze; discard any apricots if mold appears or if the apricots have an off smell or appearance.
Thereof, what does a fresh apricot look like?
Apricots look like a smaller version of a peach, about a quarter of the size according to Extra Crispy. They have fuzz on their skin and are similarly shaped and colored.
How do you eat apricots?
Wash the fruit under cold water to remove any impurities that may be lurking among its fine hairs and in the tiny pores of the skin. Pat the skin dry and either bite right into it, or use a sharp knife to slice it in half along the seam. Use a spoon to gently pry out the stone and eat it.
