Bad attribution[edit]

In note 19, it is stated that the note about Hardouin has something to do with Bill Thayer; it doesn't. See the bottom of the linked page; the site, and the note, is by James Eason. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:37, 23 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not anymore it doesn't. I fixed it about a day after you brought up that concern. Graham87 14:08, 23 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edit request: language link[edit]

The link to the German Wikipedia article "Aprikose" is missing. Can someone more technically gifted than me activate the link? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:47, 20 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's attached to the English article Prunus armeniaca because the German Wikipedia doesn't have a stand-alone article about the species; its page covers both the species and the fruit/tree. Graham87 05:55, 21 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

USA production and acreage[edit]

This addition is not justified by WP:WEIGHT because the US is a minor producer, as shown in the FAO 2020 production table here (see ref. 14 for pick list choices) and by the list of countries by apricot production. Horse Eye's Back - this USDA-related source was the type of US production data needed, but American acreage and production are too minor to highlight with its own section or to even mention. In 2020, the US had only 3,586 hectares (8,860 acres) under cultivation and only 30,299 tonnes - official FAO data (compare to countries in the article table).

@Zefr: What does due weight have to do with US production? Due weight is about coverage in WP:RS. If you want to create subsections for other producers you can, but removing this section under WP:WEIGHT doesn't appear to be an option... Horse Eye's Back (talk) 03:07, 9 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
By definition in the guideline, WEIGHT means that the encyclopedia devotes mainspace to "significant viewpoints that have been published by reliable sources, in proportion to the prominence of each viewpoint" and that "articles should not give minority views". In the case of acreage and production, with FAO data being the RS, the US is not a significant producer, does not have prominence in apricot growing, and is a minority topic. Your addition of content on Turkey does fit, as it is the leading producer. Zefr (talk) 04:10, 9 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, the prominence of the *viewpoint* not the prominence of the producer. It doesn't matter who is a significant producer, it matters who gets significant coverage. Horse Eye's Back (talk) 04:22, 9 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lack of information about Austrian cuisine[edit]

I find it surprising there is no information about the apricot in Austrian cuisine. It is considered the 'default' fruit (what means if something is labelled with just the word 'fruit' without specification it contains apricots, most notably the filling for die Krapfen which by comparison is strawberry in Germany and either cherry, strawberry or rose petal jam in Poland) and the apricot jam is absolutely crucial for many of the Austrian cakes and desserts (quite importantly die Marillenknödeln meaning literally 'apricot noodles'). The status of apricot in Austria is also very special geographically because none of the neighbouring culinary cultures revere apricots to such a degree so it can be said that in Central Europe apricot has been the most successful in Austria. It's definitely one of the staples of the Austrian cuisine. Paweł Małecki (talk) 10:53, 10 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you can round up some sources which say what you just said I can get on that right away! Horse Eye's Back (talk) 15:26, 10 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't want to be a wise guy, but in the text it says (paraphrased a bit) that the apricot is closely related to the plum, but most closely resembles an apricot. How is is helpful to say an object more closely resembles itself? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1700:A0B0:1E70:68A2:AC29:FC2E:4DD (talk) 20:51, 7 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
