California Apricot Sources
The California apricot industry is now shipping all containers with only the numerical size designation given.
The numerical designation (recapped in detail, below) is based entirely on count per pound, as measured in a minimum weight combined sample. This should simplify ordering and help in properly identifying the California apricots when they are received.
Also below is a chart containing photographic depictions of the approximate size of the apricots in each weight category. The actual size will depend on the configuration of the different varieties of apricots shipped, ripeness, specific gravity and other factors. However, the sizes shown can serve as a rough guide for quick identification purposes.
Tray packs sizes will continue to be identified by actual fruit count. All volume fill containers must now be packed in 24-lb. net weight lugs.
