What Is Apricot?

An apricot fruit, also known as Khubani/Khumani/Jardalu in Hindi and ‘Jaldaru’ in Telugu, comprises of a centrally located single seed surrounded by crunchy aromatic edible flesh. Apricots have a velvety skin and flesh. They are not too juicy but have a smooth and sweet flavor which is slightly musky with a faint tartness somewhat similar to plums. The seed is also edible and resembles almonds in taste and appearance. It is enclosed in a hard stony shell often called a “stone”. Oil extracted from these seeds is used in cooking.
