Tips from Dave Santos, co-owner of Lucich-Santos Farms

How to select

  • Look for a bright orange or slightly green suture – where two halves meet
  • Sniff for a sweet, apricot smell

How to store

  • Ripen at room temperature in a paper bag.
  • Keeps, uncovered, in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Farmer’s favorites

Dave takes great pride in planting a new orchard and seeing a new tree’s first bloom.

“When the orchard blooms,” Dave says, “you can drive through, roll down your window and hear the bees going crazy. They love the apricot blooms, they’re so sweet.”
