- Is it mere coincidence that we paired the peach and the apricot together? Not exactly. Besides the fact that they taste amazing together, both the peach and the apricot can be traced back to the same point of origin — China. Peach got top billing in our fig bar because of its popularity. Today, it's the second biggest fruit crop in the U.S. (behind the apple). The apricot, called the golden egg of the sun by the ancient Greeks, brings a delicate, sweet flavor to the party.
The peach is rich in dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. The apricot is known for its high dietary fiber content, antioxidants, vitamin A and carotenes. (from Nature's Bakery)
