Every few years, the weather in Albuquerque is just right to allow a fruit set. Apricots are particularly susceptible to a late frost since they bloom so early. This is surprising to me since don't apricots come from the Middle East, which has weather similar to ours? Perhaps not as similar as I thought. My friends Keith and Ginger have an enormous tree, and a bumper crop this year, and apricots ripens all at once and don't keep. So I had a gift of a a few pounds of fruit that if not eaten, would be bad by tomorrow. Perfect for jam. Or cobbler. Yum.
