Apricots are delicious when ripe and juicy. Most apricots found in UK shops are imported. Because they bruise easily during transport they are harvested when they are not fully ripe which takes away some of the flavour and sweetness. If you ever find yourself in a French market in the middle of Summer, try them there!
