Pick your own apricots
May/June 2013 California Bountiful magazine
Most of America's apricots are grown on small family farms in California. You can experience the harvest up close and personal at U-pick farms in your own area. Generally, apricots are in season for picking in Northern California from May 25 to July 10 and in Southern and Central California from May 10 to August 15—but be sure to check with the farm before heading out. Cool weather often delays the harvest.
