Well, when I buy dried pit in little apricots from the Indian grocery store, the pits sprout, and I have to assume those are as dry as anything else so sold. So, yes, assuming the things haven't been blanched, they might very well sprout.
I would point out however, that, given the greater protection it would afford, if the company sells dried apricots of the type with the pits still in them, it might be a better move to buy those rather than pre-cracked pits to cut down on losses due to chipped ones. I crack mine before planting, but it is JUST before and even then I lose around half the seed.

Thank you! I think they only sell them separately. I never thought about them being blanched, will phone tomorrow and see what they say. With the exchange rate and shipping they're not exactly cheap. But if even 2 or 3 sprout it will be worth it.
