According to historical sources, a very large region that includes Turkestan, Central Asia and Western China is thought to be the homeland of apricot. It is known that apricots were in this region a long time ago, 5000 years ago, and it was cultivated. Apricots were brought to Anatolia during the campaigns of Alexander the Great in 4th century BC. Since the climate and soils suitable for its cultivation are in Anatolia, Anatolia has become the second homeland of the apricot. During the Roman and Persian wars in 1st century BC, it was first taken to Italy and then to Greece by Armenian traders.
Turkey is in the first place in the production of fresh and dried apricots in the world and has a great potential due to the quality of apricot varieties and the ecological advantages it has.
Harvesting is done gradually, as all apricot fruits do not ripen on the tree at the same time. On the tree, first the fruits on the upper branches, then the fruits on the middle branches and finally the lower branches ripen. Harvesting is normally done in three times according to this ripening order.
