About ApricotKing

Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!

In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts.  Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.

Apricot Leathers 16 oz


The wildly popular and fabulously sweet leathers are what the old timers request.

This is fruit done the "old fashioned" way - overripe fruit pulled off the tray, lightly rinsed and very, very sun-dried. 

They are intensely flavored, firm & dry, & extra sweet,  and they're SLABS.

No water weight; just the fruit dried to a crispy, bone dry texture....a fight to the finish on these apricots.

16 oz bags

If you like your cots soft and tender, order any of our other apricots.

These leather are labor intensive and difficult to clean and hand packed. 

Leathers are always the first product we run out of each season.

  1. Great for snacking

    Posted by Jenni on Mar 17th 2020

    Very firm and delicious! Perfect for snacking or eating with yogurt/muesli. Will definitely order again!

  2. too good!

    Posted by Monica on Jan 27th 2020

    I really don't want to write a review telling people how good these leathers are because they sell out too fast as it is. They are better than any candy, and are always a go to treat in the evenings for me.

  3. Love Those Leathers!

    Posted by Mike Brown on Dec 16th 2019

    I grew up in the San Jose foothills, picking and scraping cots as a kid, in the summers. I learned to love Blenheim apricots, especially the leathers. I live in Maryland now, but I still buy dried Blenheims from Apricot King Orchards and share them with my friends here. I’ve made a few converts who will never go back to Turkish apricots.

  4. Life is better with apricot leathers

    Posted by Jay ( apricot lover ) on Nov 6th 2019

    Why are the stores flooded with Mediterranean apricots? So sad it’s a good thing we have apricot king even here on the east coast we know who’s got the best apricots around ! California ! And apricot King has the best of the best I just ate a half a pound writing this review help me they are so good!

  5. My personal favorite!

    Posted by Josh Kolchins on Nov 2nd 2019

    I love the apricot leathers. Super dry and tangy, I eat these delicious treats by the handful; I really can't get enough. If you're an apricot aficionado, these are for you. Enjoy them as often as possible. Really. Buy as many bags as you can. So good.

  6. The best of the best

    Posted by Randy Leppard on Oct 31st 2019

    Even though I love all their dried apricots, the leathers are the best of the best. I eat a handful nightly and if it gets too late my golden retriever, Chelsea, will remind me that she hasn't had her favorite treat yet.

  7. The best of the best.

    Posted by James Pfutzner on Oct 19th 2019

    I have been buying product from you for years. It is the best. We have stopped by several times and always enjoyed our visit. Keep up the great work.

  8. These chewy, tart apricots are a real treat.

    Posted by Pebble Beach on Oct 12th 2019

    Highly recommend these “leathers”. Thanks Apricot King!

  9. WOW!

    Posted by Daniel on Oct 2nd 2019

    So delicious and full of concentrated apricot flavor. These are better than the best apricot leather, and without any added sugars or other ingredients. Naturally sweet (tempered with a little tartness) and complex. Eat and savor them slowly. I keep them in the refrigerator, but they are the most flavorful at room temperature. I carry some in my jersey pockets on an afternoon of cycling for some quick (and tasty) natural energy.

  10. Just Like Old Times

    Posted by Thomas Sullivan on Nov 15th 2018

    When I was a kid, we had several old apricot trees in Santa Clara Valley. We would sulfur then dry the apricots on trays placed on the roof. The Apricot King leathers remind of those apricots. Yum!
