Each blossom from a Blenheim apricot tree boasts five light pink petals. The blossoms are edible, with a beautiful floral smell and a flavor that faintly resembles that of apricots.
Over the next several months, these blossoms will go through a transformation process and eventually become delicious, juicy Blenheim apricots. Unlike many fruit trees, Apricot trees are self-fertile, meaning they can cross pollinate themselves.
Legend has it that apricot blossoms symbolize "timid love." If you have a secret crush, nows the time to pull out those apricot blossoms and share your love! ;-)
