Flowers are similar in morphology to peach, plum, and cherry. The fruit is a drupe similar to a small peach, 1.5-2.5 cm (0.6-1.0 in) diameter (larger in some modern cultivars), from yellow to orange, often tinged red on the side most exposed to the sun.

Apricot trees grow best in areas that don't get a spring frost since they flower early in the spring and an early frost destroys their flowers.

Dried apricots are a type of traditional dried fruit.
