Japanese Apricot

- Japanese apricot grows on Japanese apricot trees that are originally from Japan.  Japanese apricot tree was introduced to Korea about 1,500 years ago and its fruit has been used as food or medicine for hundreds of years.
Japanese apricot only grows in Northeast Asia: Korea, China, and Japan.  It is a kind of fruit that grows in a limited temperate zone.  In Korea, it grows in the southern part.  The ones that grow in the northern region bloom flowers but bear no fruit.  Japan has studied various ways to process and utilize Japanese apricot and proved its mysterious efficacies and contribution to human health.
Korea has made Japanese apricot wine for several decades and began to produce Japanese apricot beverages just recently.  Traditional Japanese apricot condiments were first sold by Cheongmaesil Farm of Gwangyang in 1994.
