Though you won’t find apricots on the list below, you will find them at many local farmers markets. Generally not grown for market here in San Diego County, farmers from the Central Valley bring their harvest to some local farmers markets. Since my tree only provides enough apricots for eating pleasure, I usually buy one or two boxes to stew and freeze to enjoy through the year.
The last of my apricots.
