Etymology[edit]

Via other European languages, ultimately a borrowing from Arabic البَرْقُوق (al-barqūq, plums), itself from Byzantine Greek βερικοκκῐ́ᾱ (berikokkíā, apricot tree), from Ancient Greek πραικὄκῐον (praikókion), from Late Latin (persica) praecocia (literally over-ripe (peaches)), (mālum) praecoquum (literally over-ripe (apple)).
