Red Skinned Apricots

I really like apricots, especially when fresh Ontario offerings are available in the summer, they are sweet and juicy and wonderfully flavourful. I came across these unusual, to me, variety of apricot, with red skins, in a Chinese supermarket, and knew I had to try them. Tasting them, they did not evoke the same kind of flavours that I enjoy from the Ontario variety, and they are not as fresh, being flown in from parts unknown (the source was not labelled, or if it was, it was labelled in Chinese characters, which I can't read), but they were definitely apricots, and quite good.
