Apricots are from the same family as the peach, plum, nectarine and cherry. They are a soft and fragrant fruit that has a velvety skin. They have a pale yellow or deep orange colour.
They grow in warm climates and so tend to grow in hot countries in Europe and South America.

As you can see apricots contain a hint of phosphorus, fat and calcium, and are a little acidic and are quite sweet.
They also contain some vitamin c.

Guinea pigs can also eat apricot leaves which are fine for them.
