Apricots are known as, "Moons of the Faithful" in China where they originated. Their cultivation spread westward from China to Persia and the Mediterranean, eventually coming to the New World with Spanish settlers.
The apricot brought to North America by Spanish explorers who planted them in the gardens of their missions.
The first major North American apricot harvest was recorded in 1792 south of San Francisco.
