Dried Apricot Halves
Larger varieties of apricots are dried in halves. They are similar to Gheysi but cutted in half, without the stone as well.
Whole Dried Apricot
This variety is very sweet with a vivid orange color and it is treated with sulfur dioxide in order to maintain the color, prevent bug infestation, and increase preservation. Generally, the lighter the color, the higher the SO2 content.
Natural (unsulfured) Dried Apricot
Traditional sun drying methods remove only the water from the fruit without losing its taste and flavor. This verity is also stone removed; they have a dry texture and are caramel to brown in color.
