Black Apricorns appeared in Going Apricorn!, where Kurt helped Ash, Misty, and Brock to harvest Apricorns. He made Poké Balls from the three White Apricorns, two Blue Apricorns, and one Black Apricorn that were found; and gave Brock, Misty, and Ash each a Fast Ball, Brock a Heavy Ball, and Ash and Misty each a Lure Ball for later use.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Apricorns were first mentioned in Teddiursa's Picnic, in which Kurt used various Apricorns to make special Poké Balls. Gold attempted and failed to eat the fruit of an Apricorn. Apricorns were later mentioned in Out-Odding Oddish, in which Gold was seen running after adding Apricorns into the Apriblender so the Apricorns would mix to make Aprijuice.
