From Our Family To Yours


The DJ Forry Company has been bringing the juiciest, best tasting Apricots to kitchen tables around the country for years. Like all produce we bring to market, we insist that our farming partners utilize the latest, most up to date farming and harvesting methods to ensure only the best and safest Apricots reach your table.

It’s All In The Details. What better way to ring in summer than with sweet tasty California Apricots. Sweet and tasty are the key terms here. As far as we’re concerned, there is nothing worse than biting into a beautiful apricot and end up dissatisfied. We take great pains to make sure that you enjoy every bite. Once we determine that our fruit is at the perfect stage of ripeness for harvest, our work has really just begun.


Care and Handling (click open/close)

Apricots should be sweet and tasty with every bite. Always look for fruit that feels heavy for its size.and yields to gentle pressure. Once you get your fruit home, we suggest keeping it at room temperature until fully ripe. Eat it at room temperature or refrigerate for a really cool treat.

Health Benefits (click open/close)

Vitamin C Anyone?

When you want your daily dose of Vitamin C, look no further than Apricots!

Vitamins: Apricots are an excellent source of Vitamin C, just one serving (approximately 174g) provides 26% of your total daily allowance! Apricots are also a fantastic source of Vitamin A, packing 60% of your daily requirement. These two vitamins are so important in our overall health.

Fiber: Apricots are also a good source of fiber.

Flavonoids , or Poly Phenolic Antioxidants like:

  • Beta Carotene, Lycopene: Good for heart health.
  • B Cryptoxanthin which may help with aches and pains associated with arthritis
  • Lutein: For aiding eye health.
  • Phytosterols: To help aid with keeping cholesterol in check.

Minerals Like:

  • Potassium: To help with blood pressure.
  • Iron: To help build strong red blood cells.

As a bonus, the average size apricot has only 50 calories so it falls into the category of a “Negative Calorie Food.” That means your body burns more calories to digest an apricot than it takes in from consumption. Now that’s pretty cool.

Passion

Passion is hard to define, but you know it when you see it. We believe every great tasting piece of fruit starts with a grower that has a passion for growing great fruit. Passion shows in the way they cultivate the land and in the way they harvest and handle their fruit to ensure you and your family enjoy every piece.

Innovation

From Passion flows Innovation. Beyond the time honored growing practices that define a grower of consistently great produce, what new ideas might yield better tasting, better for you fruit? Our farming partners are always asking, "What if?"

Safety

All of our farming partners believe that safe to eat produce is the best produce. Our partners follow strict protocols through adhering to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP’s), 3rd party safety audits, and Produce Industry Traceability Initiatives (PTI’s) to ensure that we know where every piece of fruit we sell comes from.
