Apricots were first introduced in Europe by the Romans in 70-60 BC through Italy and Greece and now Italy is one of the main European producers for apricots. An apricot tree plantation which has been grafted onto pure apricot rootstocks could reap fruit for as many as 40 years.

The apricot tree grows to be about 4 to 6 meters tall with white or pink flowers that start to blossom in March or April before the leaves and fruit start to appear. The flowers on an apricot tree are very similar to the peach, plum and cherry trees with each blossom displaying 5 sepals and petals.

Unterinnerhof, Italy is a picture of beauty in the spring months when fields of apricot trees are exploding with flowers in full blossom.
