Apricot is an unincorporated community in Benton County, Washington, United States, located between Prosser and Grandview.

The community was established in 1916 and probably named Apricot "for the fine apricot land offered" by the land agent of the Yakima Irrigating and Improvement Company. The community was once a railroad siding for the Northern Pacific Railroad.
