Additional Information

Grading of Dried Apricots

As Yildirim Orchards and Apricot Access, we provide only Extra Category and Category I grade dried apricots.

Extra Category: Dried apricots of this grade represent superior quality. Whole apricots must be pitted and exhibit a homogenous apricot color, with no black or discolored parts or textural defects. Halved apricots should feature clean cuts.

Category I: This grade represents good quality dried apricots. Whole apricots must also be without kernel. The color should be typical of apricots. Tolerance is given for slight appearance or color deviations and minor skin cuts, provided these flaws don’t impact the product’s overall appearance, quality, or shelf life.

Sulphured Dry Apricots – The Procedure

Apricot Access Sulphured Dried Apricots are crafted from ripe, mature apricots that have been carefully pitted and cut. To retain their appealing color, the apricots are treated with sulfur before undergoing sun drying, which effectively reduces most of their moisture content. 

Throughout this meticulous process, we adhere to best commercial practices and stringent inspection protocols. The result is a clean, wholesome product that not only meets but exceeds standards for human consumption, fully complying with all relevant Federal Regulations and their enforcement provisions.

Storage Conditions

For optimal quality and freshness, dried apricots should be stored in cool (8-11°C) and dry (50-60% relative humidity) conditions. Under these conditions, we recommend consuming the product within 12 months for the best taste and texture. For an extended shelf life, storage at temperatures of 0°C or less is advised. They should be kept out of direct sunlight.
