Try an apricot. Apricots are small sweet fruits with a golden orange color, velvety skin and flesh and slightly juicy when perfectly ripe and a delicate aroma. Some describe their flavor as musky, with a faint tartness that lies somewhere between a peach and a plum. The apricot (Prunus armeniaca) is actually a relative of the plum.
The apricot was known in Armenia during ancient times, and has been cultivated there for so long that many thought it to be native there. Apricots have been cultivated in Persia (Iran) since antiquity, and dried apricots were an important commodity on Persian trade routes.
English settlers brought the apricot to North America but most commercial production of apricots in the U.S. comes from the seedlings carried to California by Spanish missionaries. Read more about apricots.
