Black Velvet™ apricots is a designated trade name to describe the best of two great fruits: the sweet summery flavor of an apricot and the juicy flesh of a plum. It's a limited time early summer treat.
The Black Velvet™ apricot has the appearance of an orb-shaped dark plum and its skin is covered with a subtle fuzz, which makes it smooth to the touch. The fruit's flesh is mix of golden hues and ruby red tones. When ripe, the flesh is sweet and tangy, melting in your mouth and releasing layers of juice.
Black Velvet™ apricots are best when eaten fresh. To save this fruit all year long, use this to make a compote or jam. To add variety to this fruit, pair it with mild cheeses, seafood or meats.
