The apriums are blended stone fruits - blended the old fashioned way. They ripen after the cherries but before the apricots, plums, and peaches. To me, the taste is close to an apricot which makes sense as it is more apricot than plum. So far it has been easier for me to grow apriums than apricots. This is a picture of Flavor Delight Aprium. It resembles an apricot but with a distinctive flavor and texture all its own and has a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. Early June is the expected ripeness time. Spread the food ripening out to cover all the months of the year!
