Beautiful plump apricots can be seen in almost every neighborhood. We've become the Hunza Land of Montana.
Perhaps one more week on the tree. My 2 dehydrators are ready and rare'n to go. Dried apricots have even a higher concentration of beta carotene than the raw and the raw apricot is like a health miracle. A bumper crop on this tree that is in my daughter's yard.
I will not list all the health benefits (trust me, there are many) but 2 biggies that most people have interest in...... delays cancer and is a powerful "fat" fighter.
I planted 5 more fruit trees this spring, of which, 2 are apricot. Hey bloggie friends....... plant some fruit trees. Free Health Care.
Are you a tree planter?
