The Angelcots have a pale-yellow skin with a pale peach blush. They are grown in Northern California and are only available for three to six weeks each year. With the juiciness of the ripest nectarine and the texture and aroma of an apricot, the fruit is rich in vitamins A and C. They are also a good source of fiber.

“As each season nears, we hear from shoppers and retailers who have tasted Angelcots and can’t wait for the season to start,” said Karen Caplan, president and chief executive officer of Frieda’s. “We take pre-bookings every year.”

The Angelcots come in 16 1-pound clamshell packages.

Retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice distributors who are interested can contact Frieda’s for product information and high resolution images.
