No Apricot, Thank You

Welcome to No Thank You, a linkup about the food you hate, despise, and simply don’t get along with. It’s a quick and fun way to share the reasons you avoid the gross foods you hate – and a great way to meet others who share similar tastes. I’d love for you to join us and add a link to your own blog post!

Many of my young summertime memories involve apricot juice dripping down my chin and landing on the wooden deck below. I spent my summer vacations outside; my mom supplied foods that were easy to eat on-the-go and apricots were one of them. As I grew older, fond memories of this light orange and fuzzy fruit faded. The juicy and flavorful fruit became dull and pithy. After a few experiences with pithy apricots, I gave up on the stone fruit all together. Now-a-days, it’s not that I don’t like apricots as much as I despise the pithy ones.


  • Do I always catch apricots when they are over-ripe and pithy or do they always have a grainy texture? The work that goes into finding a ripe apricot without a weird texture is exhausting.

Why don’t you eat apricot?
