It’s fruit trivia time! Which fruit originated in China 4,000 years ago and is a relative of the peach? Your first guess might be the nectarine, right? It is, in fact, the petite and beloved apricot- a fruit rich in vitamins A & C. It made its way slowly westward from China, through the Mediterranean, and finally over to North America, where it mainly settled in California. California produces 95% of our country’s apricots. Yum!

How do you want to enjoy an apricot today?

  • Grab your fruit knife and cut yourself a fresh slice
  • Make a yummy tart or homemade preserves
  • Have an afternoon snack of dried apricots

When you hear the word “fruit,” usually the typical names pop to mind: apple, banana, pear, orange, peach, etc. But this month you’ll need to think outside the box, as it is Root Vegetable and Exotic Fruits Month. Have you ever heard (or tasted) any of these?

  • Kumquat
  • Durian
  • Pomelo
  • Mangosteen
  • Chom Chom

You can use a fruit knife to taste-test some of these fruits (although some have a hard outer shell, so you might need something a bit stronger!)

Have you ever purchased fruit from the grocery store, only to come home, slice it up, and realize it just wasn’t as ripe as you had hoped?

Enter the fruit knife.

Before cutting up all of the fruit you might be baking with for Thanksgiving, have a quick taste-test by taking a small segment out with your fruit knife. If it’s not quite ready, leave it out to ripen for a few more days and it’ll be ready for whatever delish pie you’re going to make next week!

Happy Holidays!
