We have discovered that apricots are already mature in some parts of the island. Take the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful refreshing fruit. Eat it fresh from the tree or why not make marmalade or a good apricot wine? Also why not visit the apricot festival in Esentepe that kicks off today, Friday, May 29, for fun activities and to taste good apricots in their various delicious forms.
