The apricot tree and it`s fruit.

While the apricot tree is easy to grow making it a good choice for those that want to have a single fruit tree in their yard, the fruit is not only delicious, but contains one of the highest concentrations of carotenoids of any food along with other useful nutrition which makes it an excellent choice for natural cures.

It is often debated where this tree has it`s origins. But it was cultivated earliest in China, Japan and Armenia. Now this tree is growing in many parts of the world. Unlike many fruit trees it does not rely on other trees because they self polinate. They do require good soil and yearly fertilization.

In addition to apricots having the highest concentration of carotenoids, it is also an excellent source of lycopene and very high in fiber.

In addition to the fruit the seeds are used medicinally. For more then 1500 years apricot seeds have been used for treatment of tumors and in the last 200 years many have used and believe the seeds to be an effective treatment for some kinds of cancer.

Because of their high concentration of carotenoids, lycopene and fiber the fruit of the aprocot tree is used as a home remedy for heart disease, high cholesterol and constipation.
