Apricot tree, Valderrey, Algete, Madrid.

Apricot tree, Valderrey, Algete, Madrid.
My sister and brother-in-law's garden. Apparently this small tree was so overladen with fruit last week that they had to shore up all the branches. And the tree was only planted last year! The fruit is utterly delicious and a million light years away from the sour and hairy things we see in England most of the time! Also, it fruits in May and June, the normal fruiting and harvest time. Being brought up with harvests expected in September and October it is sort of counter-intuitive. For example, I would normally about now begin to pick asparagus from my garden in Harrow but the season here finished some time ago.

95% were picked last week. These are the few that remain and I guess they will be all picked today or tomorrow.

Funnily enough it's all my brother-in-law's work (with twice-a-year help from yours truly!). He's from farming stock and he thinks agriculture of any description is in his blood. My sister doesn't get a look in and in fact she's more than happy if he's in the garden rather than in the bar!

Oh I do love apricots. They only have what's in season here in Turkey and you are so right, they're delicious straight from the tree.
