Melissa’s Black Velvet™ Apricots have a deep purple (almost black) skin which is covered with a thin layer of light-colored fuzz. The interior of this fruit is a bright golden color with a super sweet, highly concentrated flavor.

The warm late Spring and early Summer weather in California produces an intense flavor in these fruits that is reminiscent of apricot preserves.

Black Velvet™ Apricots may bruise easily when ripe; handle with care. To ripen, hold at 65 - 70º. They are ripe when they give to gentle pressure. Note: Black Velvet™ Apricots are sensitive to ethylene producing fruits and vegetables.
