Our sun-dried apricots come from Turkey, where they get optimal growth conditions due to the warm climate of the Mediterranean. Apricots are a stone fruit that grows on trees. The beautiful apricot trees bloom in March and the fresh apricots are harvested in July. In the meantime, apricot trees lie dormant.
After the harvest the fresh, sun-dried apricots are pitted and dried under the sun. They are sorted manually several times in the process to ensure a high quality. Our apricots are sulfurized for 2 reasons. It is the tradition in Turkey where the apricots come from, that the beautiful orange-yellow color is retained. The apricots are also sulfurized to ensure a longer shelf life in the dried apricots. Of course, our apricots adhere to the limit values for sulfur dioxide in relation to the legislation, but if you prefer unsolved apricots, then go for the organic ones.
