Preservation tips for customer:

Apricots should be stored in the fridge, where they will keep 5-7 days, and should be washed before eating. If they are too firm, they may be kept in a paper bag outside the fridge for 2 days.

It is best to keep them at room temperature before consumption, so that they can attain their full flavor.

They can also be kept in the freezer if they are first cut open and their pits removed.
