Apricots are nearly round with a depression at the top
where the stem attached. They have a vertical indentation
that starts at the stem and goes down one side. The skin is
yellow-orange to pink-orange and feels soft and smooth.
Apricots can be similar in appearance to peaches and
nectarines, but those fruits usually have a reddish coloring
to their skins. Apricots can also be confused with
persimmons, but persimmons have shinier skin.
