We supply the majority of our Apricot Puree from Spain and Greece. The climate is much more desirable here for growing Apricots as it is nice and sunny!
The blooming period is very important for the Apricot trees as this is where the fruit develops on the tree. If a hailstorm or frost happens during this time it could ruin all the fruit on the tree.
An Apricot grower will have lots of Apricot trees in an Orchard and they will look after the fruit until they are at optimum ripeness ready for picking. Once the Apricots are picked from the trees, they must be delivered quickly to the factory to be manufactured into Puree.
Apricot Puree is manufactured by heating and sieving ripe Apricot’s to make a smooth puree ensuring all the stones are removed. The product is Aseptic to give a long shelf life (18 months) however the heat treatment is short to ensure the Apricot Puree has a fresh taste.
