Apricot (Prunus armeniaca; Ukrainian: abrykosa, morelia, or zherdelia). Fruit tree and sometimes bush of the family Rosaceae. The apricot tree is not discriminating about soils, but is sensitive to cold. In Ukraine the apricot is common in the steppe and the forest-steppe belts, particularly on the coast of the Sea of Azov and in Podilia and the regions of the lower Dnipro River and Boh River. The most common varieties in Ukraine are the Red-cheeked (chervonoshchoki) and Sorochyntsi apricots.
