Cultivation & harvest
With the spring begins the ideal time for planting apricot trees. Warm, permeable soils, sandy loam, loess but also sandy, stony soils with loamy subsoil are preferred for cultivation. The sunny weather conditions of the Palatinate thus provide the optimal climate for juicy, aromatic apricots.
The fruit is perfect for eating fresh but can also be baked in cakes, gateaux and desserts, used in a compote or jam and as dried fruit.
Apricots keep for about three days if stored in a cool place. They should be handled carefully, as they bruise easily.
