Hello, Owen. We cut the pits fresh out of apricots, cracked open the pits (like nuts) and my friend just swallowed the seeds whole (they were too bitter to chew up. I don't know if there is a source for fresh apricot seeds, and I don't know if dried seeds (for planting) would work. We pretty much kept a fifty mile radius clean of apricots the whole time. Spoiled apricots seemed to work, too.
