California Patterson Apricots
The Patterson is our favorite with its sweet yet tangy flavor combination! Contrary to popular belief, this variety originated in Le Grand, California -- a small rural town in the San Joaquin Valley. The Patterson was named after another little rural town, which has been billed the “Apricot Capital of the World." The town of Patterson once was the apricot hub in the 1950s when hundreds of apricot orchards were relocated there from the Santa Clara valley. Our dried Patterson Apricots surprise each bite with sweet apricot flesh and a rich tangy skin.
