Why Apricot Has Almond?

Because apricots taste like almonds right? XD.
Apricot seeds do sound and taste like almonds, but that’s because the seeds contain cyanogenic glycosides that can produce sweet almond-like flavors and fragrances (and bitter almond-like tastes and odors). The flavor of almonds is not really an inherent property of the fruit; it is a property imparted by those toxic compounds. So now you know what would happen if you sprouted those seeds. Don’t try this at home! | A apricot tree can theoretically produce both apricots and almonds as individual fruits, but hybridization with other species such as the peach tree will generally prevent this from happening…
