Organic Apricot Kernels have a unique flavour, an impressive nutritional profile and a golden colour. When Apricots are sun-dried they are nutritionally denser compared to fresh ones. It is known for containing amygdalin, that is a poisonous compound.

What are apricot kernels?

When Organic Apricot Kernels are ripe they will have a golden orange colour, velvety surface and a mild-sweet taste with a little bit of tartness, just like plums.

Organic Apricots originate from Asia where they grow on small deciduous trees that really thrive when in well-drained sloping soils. In the springtime, the trees produce white-pink flowers which are very beautiful. Apricots have a couple of close relatives which include: nectarine, plums and peaches. The history of the Apricots starts around 60BC in Greece where it was called ‘’golden eggs of the sun’’. Around 4,000 years ago it was a very important food crop in China where it grew on mountain slopes. But Greece was the people who brought apricots to other countries like Armenia, the Mediterranean an to Europe. But only around the 1700s, the apricots were brought to the US, by the Spanish explorers.
