    APRICOT DESCRIPTION

    THE FRUIT OF THE APRICOT TREE

    The Apricot, Prunus armeniaca is a species of Prunus, classified with the plum in the subgenus Prunus. The native range is somewhat uncertain due to its extensive prehistoric cultivation. The apricot is a small tree that grows 26 to 39 feet tall with a trunk up to 16 inches in diameter and a dense spreading canopy. The leaves are ovate, 2 to 3.5 inches long and 1.6 to 3.1 inches wide, with a round base, a pointed tip and a finely serrated margin. The flowers are 0.8 to 1.8 inches in diameter, with five white to pinkish petals. The petals are produced singly or in pairs in early spring before the leaves. The fruit is a drupe similar to a small peach, 0.6 to 1 inch in diameter (larger in some modern cultivars), from yellow to orange in color. The fruit is often tinged red on the side most exposed to the sun. Its surface can be smooth (botanically described as glabrous) or velvety with very short hairs (botanically pubescent). The flesh is usually firm and not very juicy. Its taste can range from sweet to tart. The single seed is enclosed in a hard stony shell, often called a "stone" with a grainy smooth texture except for three ridges running down one side.

    HISTORY OF APRICOT CULTIVATION

    The apricot was known in Armenia during ancient times, and has been cultivated there for so long, it is often thought to have originated there. Its scientific name Prunus Armeniaca (Armenian Plum) derives from that assumption. For example, De Poerderle, writing in the 18th century asserted ":this tree takes its name from Armenia, province of Asia, where it is native and whence it was brought to Europe". An archaeological excavation at Garni in Armenia found apricot seeds in an Eneolithic-era site. Despite the great number of varieties of apricots that are grown in Armenia today (about 50), according to Vavilov its center of origin would be the Chinese region, where domestication of apricot would have taken place. Other sources say that the apricot was first cultivated in India about 3000 BCE.

    The introduction to Greece is attributed to Alexander the Great. Later, the Roman General Lucullus (106 to 57 BCE) also would have imported some trees - the cherry, white heart cherry, and apricot - from Armenia to Rome. Subsequent sources were often confused about the origin o the species. Loudon (1838) believed it had a wide native range including Armenia, Caucasus, The Himalaya, China and Japan. Apricots have been cultivated in Persia since antiquity, and dried apricots were an important commodity on Persian trade routes. Apricots remain an important fruit in modern-day Iran. Egyptians usually dry apricots, add sweetener, and then use them to make a drink called amar al-din.

    More recently, English settlers brought the apricot to the English colonies in the New World. Most of modern American production of apricots comes from the seedlings carried to the west coast by Spanish missionaries. Almost all U.S. commercial production is in California, with some in Washington and Utah.

    Many apricots are also cultivated in Australia, particularly South Australia, where they are commonly grown in the region known as the Riverland and a small town called Mypolonga in the Lower Murray region of the state. In states other than South Australia, apricots are still grown, particularly in Tasmania and western Victoria and southwest New South Wales, but they are less common than in South Australia.

    Today, apricot cultivation has spread to all parts of the globe with climates that support it.

    CULTIVATION

    Although the apricot is native to a continental climate region with cold winters, it can grow in Mediterranean climates if enough cool winter weather allows a proper dormancy. The dry climate of these areas is good for fruit maturation. The tree is slightly more cold-hardy than the peach, tolerating winter temperatures as cold as - 30°C or lower if healthy. A limiting factor in apricot culture is spring frosts: They tend to flower very early, meaning spring frost can kill the flowers. Furthermore, the trees are sensitive to temperature changes during the winter season. In China, winters can be very cold, but temperatures tend to be more stable than in Europe and especially North America, where large temperature swings can occur in winter. Hybridization with the closely related Prunus sibirica (Siberian apricot; hardy to -50°C but with less palatable fruit) offers options for breeding more cold-tolerant plants. Turkey is the leading apricot producer, followed by Iran and Uzbekistan.

    Apricot cultivars are most often grafted onto plum or peach rootstocks. The scion from an existing apricot plant provides the fruit characteristics, such as flavor and size, but the rootstock provides the growth characteristics of the plant. Cultivators have created what is known as a "black apricot", but it this is not a genuine apricot, as it is a hybrid between an apricot and a plum. This fruit is variously called plumcots, apriplums, pluots, or apriums. Apricots have a chilling requirement of 300 to 900 chilling units. They are hardy in USDA zones 5 through 8. Some of the more popular US cultivars of apricots include 'Blenheim', 'Wenatchee Moorpark', 'Tilton', and 'Perfection'.

    An old adage says an apricot tree will not grow far from the mother tree; the implication is that apricots are particular about the soil conditions in which they are grown. They prefer well-drained soils with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0. Some apricot cultivars are self-compatible and do not require pollinizer trees (others are not, as 'Moongold' and 'Sungold', which must be planted in pairs so that they can pollinate each other).

    Apricots are susceptible to numerous diseases whose relative importance is different in the major production regions as a consequence of their climatic differences. Diseases include bacterial canker and blast, bacterial spot and crown gall, and an even longer list of fungal diseases, including brown rot, black knot, Alternaria spot and fruit rot, and powdery mildew. Other problems for apricots are nematodes, viral and phytoplasma diseases, including graft-transmissible problems.

    APRICOT KERNELS

    Seeds or kernels of the apricot grown in central Asia and around the Mediterranean are so sweet, they may be substituted for Almonds. The Italian liqueur amaretto and amaretti biscotti are flavored with extract of apricot kernels rather than almonds. Oil pressed from these cultivars has been used as cooking oil. The apricot kernel is known for containing amygdalin, and ineffective, and sometimes dangerous, purported alternative cancer treatment.

    Apricot kernels can sometimes be strong-tasting and bitter. They feature in recipes for apricot jam, and Italian amaretto cookies and liqueur. Kernels contain between 2.05 and 2.40 percent hydrogen cyanide, but normal consumption is insufficient to produce serious effects. Taken in excess, they may produce symptoms of cyanide poisoning, including nausea, fever, rash, headaches, insomnia, increased thirst, weakness, lethargy, nervousness, various aches and pains in joints and muscles, and a drop in blood pressure.

    In 1993, the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets tested the cyanide content of two 220 gram (8 ounce) packages of apricot kernels that were imported from Pakistan and were being sold in health-food stores as a snack. The results showed that each package, if consumed entirely, contained at least double the minimum lethal dosage of cyanide for an adult human. The apricot pits were recalled and removed from stores. There was one reported case in the medical literature of cyanide toxicity from apricot kernels from 1979 to 1998 in the United States. On average, an apricot kernel contains about 0.5 mg of cyanide.

    APRICOT KERNEL OIL

    Apricot Kernel Oil is an all-natural oil derived from the inner portion of the Mediterranean apricot. Vegetable-derived oils date back to Biblical times, when they were mixed with fragrant herbs to create traditional ointments. Similar to Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil nourishes your skin, softening lines and bringing a healthy glow, and is a wonderful massage oil. In addition, it is rich in essential fatty acids, making it ideal as a treatment for soft, radiant hair. Apricot Kernel Oil is smooth and high in Vitamin A and minerals. Often used as a cosmetic oil, Apricot Kernel Oil softens and moisturizes skin.

    Apricot Kernel Oil is rich in oleic and linoleic acids (essential fatty acids), and is known for its ability to penetrate the skin without leaving an oily feel. It is also a smooth and lightweight oil that has an excellent texture that is great for all skin types. It is also high in mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and contains Vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6 and Vitamin E. Apricot Kernel Oil is obtained from the dried kernels of the Apricot tree. The oil is obtained by removing the pit from the apricot and cracking the shell of the pit in order to access the kernel covered by the shell. The oil is then pressed from the kernel. It is a very healthy oil because it is high in monounsaturated fat and contains no trans-fatty acids.

    APRICOT KERNEL MEAL

    A finely ground meal from the pits and kernels of Apricots is an ideal medium that produces a gritty sensation when used in soaps, facial scrubs and exfoliating body care products. It works wonderfully as a stand-alone application or combined with other butters, oils or included with other substances in developing final skin care products. It is applied to the skin and used as an exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and bringing out the rosy glow of new skin underneath the dried and flaky old skin layer.





    APRICOT USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES OF APRICOTS

    Cyanogenic glycosides (found in most stone fruit seeds, bark, and leaves) are found in high concentration in apricot seeds. Laetrile, a purported alternative treatment for cancer, is extracted from apricot seeds. Apricot seeds were used against tumors as early as AD 502. In England during the 17th century, apricot oil was also used against tumors, swellings, and ulcers. In 2005, scientists in the Republic of Korea found that treating human prostate cancer cells with amygdalin induces programmed cell death in vitro. They concluded, "amygdalin may offer a valuable option for the treatment of prostate cancers".

    A 2006 systematic review by the Cochrane Collaboration concluded: "The claim that laetrile has beneficial effects for cancer patients is not supported by data from controlled clinical trials. This systematic review has clearly identified the need for randomized or controlled clinical trials assessing the effectiveness of laetrile or amygdalin for cancer treatment." Given the lack of evidence, laetrile has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    The U.S. National Institutes of Health evaluated the evidence separately and concluded the clinical trials of amygdalin showed little or no effect against cancer. For example, a 1982 trial of 175 patients found tumor size had increased in all but one patient. The authors reported, "the hazards of amygdalin therapy were evidenced in several patients by symptoms of cyanide toxicity or by blood cyanide levels approaching the lethal range."

    The study concluded, "Patients exposed to this agent should be instructed about the danger of cyanide poisoning, and their blood cyanide levels should be carefully monitored. Amygdalin (Laetrile) is a toxic drug that is not effective as a cancer treatment".

    In Europe, apricots were long considered an aphrodisiac, and were used in this context in William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and as an inducer of childbirth, as depicted in John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi. Due to their high fiber to volume ratio, dried apricots are sometimes used to relieve constipation or induce diarrhea. Effects can be felt after eating as few as three.

    OTHER USES OF APRICOT

    In Armenia, the wood of the apricot tree is used for making wood carvings such as the duduk, which is a popular wind instrument in Armenia and is also called the apricot pipe. Several hand-made souvenirs are also made from the apricot wood.

    APRICOT FRUIT HEALTH BENEFITS

    Apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh: not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Their flavor is almost musky, with a faint tartness that is more pronounced when the fruit is dried. Some people think of the flavor as being somewhere between a peach and a plum, fruits to which they are closely related. Apricots are those beautifully orange colored fruits full of beta-carotene and fiber that are one of the first signs of summer. Although dried and canned apricots are available year-round, fresh apricots with a plentiful supply of vitamin C and are in season in North America from May through August. Any fresh fruit you see during the winter months have been imported from either South America or New Zealand.

    Nutrients in apricots can help protect the heart and eyes, as well as provide the disease-fighting effects of fiber. The high beta-carotene content of apricots makes them important heart health foods. Beta-carotene helps protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation, which may help prevent heart disease. Apricots contain nutrients such as vitamin A that promote good vision. Vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant, quenches free radical damage to cells and tissues. Free radical damage can injure the eyes' lenses. The degenerative effect of free radicals, or oxidative stress, may lead to cataracts or damage the blood supply to the eyes and cause macular degeneration. Researchers who studied over 50,000 registered nurses found women who had the highest vitamin A intake reduced their risk of developing cataracts nearly 40 percent.

    Apricots are a good source of fiber, which has a wealth of benefits including preventing constipation and digestive conditions such as diverticulosis. But most Americans get less than 10 grams of fiber per day. A healthy, whole foods diet should include apricots as a delicious way to add to your fiber intake.

    Protect Your Eyesight: Your mother may have told you carrots would keep your eyes bright as a child, but as an adult, it looks like fruit is even more important for keeping your sight. Data reported in a study published in the Archives of Opthamology indicates that eating 3 or more servings of fruit per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults, by 36 percent, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily.

    In this study, which involved over 100,000 women and men, researchers evaluated the effect of study participants' consumption of fruits; vegetables; the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E; and carotenoids on the development of early ARMD or neovascular ARMD, a more severe form of the illness associated with vision loss. Food intake information was collected periodically for up to 18 years for women and 12 years for men.

    While, surprisingly, intakes of vegetables, antioxidant vitamins and carotenoids were not strongly related to incidence of either form of ARMD, fruit intake was definitely protective against the severe form of this vision-destroying disease.

    Three servings of fruit may sound like a lot to eat each day, but by simply tossing a banana into your morning smoothie or slicing it over your cereal, topping off a cup of yogurt or green salad with a half cup of berries, and snacking on an apricot, you have reached this goal.

    SELECTING & STORAGE OF APRICOTS

    Apricot season in the U.S. runs from May through August. In the winter, apricots are imported from South America. Look for fruits with a rich orange color while avoiding those that are pale and yellow. Fruits should be slightly soft. If they are too firm they have not been tree-ripened, and tree-ripened fruits always taste best. For the most antioxidants, choose fully ripened fruit:
    • Research conducted at the University of Innsbruck in Austria suggests that as fruits fully ripen, almost to the point of spoilage, their antioxidant levels actually increase.
    • Key to the process is the change in color that occurs as fruits ripen, a similar process to that seen in the fall when leaves turn from green to red to yellow to brown&mash;a color change caused by the breakdown and disappearance of chlorophyll, which gives leaves and fruits their green color.
    • Until now, no one really knew what happened to chlorophyll during this process, but lead researcher, Bernard Krutler, and his team, working together with botanists over the past several years, has identified the first decomposition products in leaves: colorless, polar NCCs (nonfluorescing chlorophyll catabolytes), that contain four pyrrole rings - like chlorophyll and heme.
    • After examining apples and pears, the scientists discovered that NCCs replace the chlorophyll not only in the leaves of fruit trees, but in their very ripe fruits, especially in the peel and flesh immediately below it.


    • "When chlorophyll is released from its protein complexes in the decomposition process, it has a phototoxic effect: when irradiated with light, it absorbs energy and can transfer it to other substances. For example, it can transform oxygen into a highly reactive, destructive form," report the researchers. However, NCCs have just the opposite effect. Extremely powerful antioxidants, they play an important protective role for the plant, and when consumed as part of the human diet, NCCs deliver the same potent antioxidant protection within our bodies.

    APRICOT SERVING IDEAS

  • Add sliced apricots to hot or cold cereal.
  • The next time you make whole grain pancakes, add some chopped apricots to the batter.
  • Give a Middle Eastern flavor to chicken or vegetable stews with the addition of dried, diced apricots.
  • Serve fresh apricots in your green salad when they are in season.


  • APRICOT KERNEL OIL

    Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus Armeniaca) moisturizes and revitalizes skin, But preferred by many practitioners for the benefits that it renders for prematurely aged skin and skin that is dry and irritated. It may also be used as a cosmetic ingredient for softening and moisturizing. This oil is a popular massage oil and it is used a carrier oil when combined with essential oils for aromatherapy. Apricot Kernel Oil is commonly used to relieve itching, dryness, and inflammation of the skin and is for all skin types. The oil extracted from the kernel is a nourishing and lubricating oil.

    The Apricot Kernel does have some health benefits of its own. The kernels can be used internally for respiratory problems, bronchitis and dry constipation. Apricot Kernels are used in Chinese medicine (Xing Ren) to stop coughing and wheezing and are used alone specifically for a dry cough, while they are mixed with other herbs to treat a productive cough. There has been some experimental work done on how Apricot Kernels can assist in cancer, but this work is still in the beginning phases and is not seen as a main stream alternative remedy as of yet.

    APRICOT SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    There are no known safety issues associated with using Apricot Kernel Oil externally.

    DRIED APRICOTS & SULFITES

    Commercially grown dried apricots may be treated with sulfur dioxide gas during processing. They may also be treated with sulfites to extend their shelf life.

    Sulfur-containing compounds are often added to dried foods like apricots as preservatives to help prevent oxidation and bleaching of colors. The sulfites used to help preserve dried apricots cause adverse reactions in an estimated one out of every 100 people, who turn out to be sulfite sensitive.

    Sulfite reactions can be particularly acute in people who suffer from asthma. The Federal Food and Drug Administration estimates that 5 percent of asthmatics may suffer a reaction when exposed to sulfites. Instead of the bright orange color of sulfite-treated dried apricots, unsulfured dried apricots have brown color, but are a much healthier choice for sulfite-sensitive individuals.

    Foods that are classified as "organic" do not contain sulfites since federal regulations prohibit the use of these preservatives in organically grown or produced foods. Therefore, concern about sulfite exposure is yet another reason to purchase organic foods.
