Apricot, also called ''Armenian apple'' has disputed origins between Armenia, China, India and sometimes even Japan. Introduced in Greece by Alexander the Great, it soon spread into Western Europe where it has been grown since then. Slightly over 50% of apricots are produced in the Mediterranean area. The Golden Delicious variety is a large, yellowish-green skinned type of apple known for being quite sweet to the taste. In France, its production is considered to be optimized at a certain altitude to benefit from cooler temperatures.
Apples provide a fair amount of vitamins, contain a dietary fiber pectin (known to lower cholesterol levels and help to prevent heart attacks). They also contain boron, which helps to build strong bones. They can be stored up to 3 months in a refrigerator. Apricots contain various phytochemicals, such as provitamin A beta-carotene and various polyphenols. Rich in fibers, apricots are beneficial for digestive transit and contribute to colon cancer and heart disease prevention.
