    By: The Hale Groves Team | On: | Category: Fruit Facts Healthy Eating

    Great news, fruit lovers – apricot season is almost here! Have you never had a fresh apricot? If the answer is “no,” that’s not totally surprising – most of the time, unless you can get them locally, they’re not super-flavorful.
