Apricots from l’Isle sur la Sorgue
First Apricots of the Season
These beautiful early Apricots come from one of the most fertile areas of Provence.
Tasting Notes of the Curator
These apricots are beautifully juicy, moderately sweet and tangy. Their soft flesh and skin are a pleasure for the senses. They announce the beginning of French summer and are a perfect treat for the whole family.
Eat as is, or pair with a Kurimu Shoyu Caramel ice cream and some berries.
From the magical Comtat Venaissin
I’Isle sur la Sorgue is at the heart of the Comtat Venaissin, that used to be a pontifical state from the 13th to the 18th century. The Comtat Venaissin includes Carpentras, famous for its strawberries, Cavaillon, famous for the Melons, and l’Isle sur la Sorgue, famous for its fruits and vegetables and markets.
Apricots continue to ripen after picking. They should be stored at room temperature, away from sunlight and heat until they give softly to the touch and have a sweet aroma. Once ripe, refrigerate apricots as necessary to prevent spoiling, but cold temperatures may change their texture and taste.
