The Bergeron variety produces apricots of fabulous flavor: tart, fleshy, tasty, tender, and fragrant. In the orchards of our partner farmers, the harvest is done entirely by hand in several stages, which allows us to receive fruit that is fully ripe and loaded with sugar.
The Rhone Valley is traditionally a great supplier of apricots. Ponthier has selected the Bergeron apricot which comes from the Rhone Valley, an ideal terroir for this variety.
Mr. Bergeron created this variety in Mont d'Or between the two wars. It is perfectly adapted to the warm and sunny alluvial terraces of the Rhone Valley, taking advantage of a silty soil well maintained by irrigation so that the apricot trees produce even more beautiful and tasty fruit.
