Details

Fruit:  Apricots
Variety:  Kettleman
Grown:  Brentwood, CA
Farm:  Frog Hollow Farm
What Are They?  A juicy, sweet-tart early season apricot.
Origins/History:Esteemed plant breeder and research geneticist Craig A. Ledbetter developed the Kettleman apricot. Passionate about flavor and eating quality, over 1,000 Kettleman trees were grown out and trialed before this new variety was made available to fruit growers. Ledbetter named the fruit for the small city of Kettleman, Calif., near which test trees were planted. As fans of Ledbetter's varieties, we were among the first CA growers to plant this delicious early-season apricot in 2009. Kettlemans do exceptionally well in our soil and climate, beautifully expressing their classic sweet-tart apricot flavor.
Nutritional Value:  Apricots provide iron, potassium, fiber, vitamin C and beta-carotene which the human body converts into vitamin.
How to cut/peel:  Easy to peel and the membranes separate easily.
Serving Suggestions:  No need to peel. Cut vertical in half and remove the seed Out of hand, in salads and desserts.
