Depends greatly on your sources, ripeness and varietal of both mango and apricot. That's before any processing, which may happen if you purchase in juice form. Apricot juice would be my substitute, if I were substituting. It's not far off. And, I think with a few pine nuts pureed in, it would be indistinguishable. Mango's flavor profile is pretty much apricot + pine notes. Some(most)mango juices are either really flat in the pine category, or are cut with other juices, which dulls the flavor. So, yeah. In a blind test, I'd say 50% of trained, experienced chefs, would be guessing between apricot and mango purees. Plus, apricot is less used these days. So, like you said, most people's brains will jump to mango before apricot, just out of habit.

Tl:dr
Apricot would be a chef approved substitute for flavor profile and water content.:)

Also, if you want to trick someone, give them apricot to taste, then have them guess. Then tell them it was apricot. Next, have them taste apricot again. Tell them to guess what it is this time. But, while they're tasting, pinch a pine nut under their nose. Guaranteed to get a mango "false positive".
:D
Good luck

EDIT Stay away from most dried apricots(especially from California). They usually have a super high sulfur content and will ruin most everything you put them in, except for maybe oatmeal.:)
Wow, that was a lot more information than I expected, you get a gif.


edit; it was way to big
nevermind, I can't make the gif smaller anyway.

Sorry. Chronic over explainer. I don't feel like I've given a complete answer unless I've given an answer, and the reasoning behind it. Just that "something works" isn't good enough for me. I need to know why so I can extrapolate how the system reacts in every other situation. They say it's a symptom. I just assumed everyone processed the same way. Then I thought nobody did. Now I realize that I, and people similar, have a NEED to know why and how. But, I usually only need to know the boundaries and extremes of the system, to understand the "rules".
Sorry. I'm sure none of this makes any sense but, I've already typed it. I've overexplained my reason for overexplaining.
Also, thanks fo' the gif.:)

If you've ever wanted to try Flexjobs, as of this morning the code LABOR still works for 30% off the annual fee.
