Apricots [Jan. 5th, 2006|09:19 am]
Tony Grist
I have discovered apricots. Fresh apricots, I mean. I've always liked then tinned- in syrup (with ice cream)- but I don't think I'd ever eaten a fresh one before this Christmas. They taste like plums, a little firmer, a little less tart and the joy of them is that they're small. Large pieces of fruit intimidate me; I think- when faced with an apple or a large melon wedge- do I really have to eat all that? But an apricot goes down in a couple of bites.

And then I want another....

You never ate a fresh apricot before? Whoa! I practically live of this fruit most of the summer. It is the only fresh fruit besides strawberries I can eat until I drop. I don't eat them now because out of season they are so expensive, and also I really don't like food that has to be transported from far away.
So I get they don't grow in GB, even in the summer? I'm such an ignorant!

I'm not sure if we grow them here. I doubt it. Gardeners with south facing walls might manage it, but I don't think it would be a commercial proposition.

I don't remember seeing them in the shops until recently- but it could be I just wasn't looking.
