Apricots are rich in nutrients. It tastes as if it was made for the delight of spring and summer. Combine them with blueberries to make a fruit crisp, or saute them up to make an apricot compote you can serve over ice cream or yogurt. Making a batch of apricot jam is also good decision.
Who doesn’t love strawberries? Strawberries are at their peak from April to June. However, thanks to technology, we can have frozen strawberries all the time.

Tart and refreshing, also best eaten fresh. Just decide if the fruit is ripe by feeling its firmness. It should give a little but still be firm, and the color of the fruit’s exterior should be even. Sliced down the middle and then scooped out of the pink shell. They make really good marriage with salads as well!
Cherry! Sadly, most of cherry trees are cultivated for cherry blossoms and don’t bear fruit. That’s why the cherry is prestigious. If you want to pick really sweet ones, the depth of color is more important than the particular shade of red. Look for fruits with deep, dark saturation. If the stem is intact, a bright green color indicates freshness. And all you’ll do is; just enjoy.
As you all might know, good things don’t last forever.
