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.

July 4, 2016 - Happy Fourth of July! Another harvest is behind us. Sadly, we have no more fresh apricots available. This is the earliest completed harvest we have ever seen. As for our sun-dried apricots, our slip pits are now available on our web site with leathers and slabs to follow shortly. Our unsulphured will take a little longer..they take their own very sweet time.
June 9, 2016 - We are beginning to pick the fresh apricots. Our fresh apricot season will be extremely short this year. We plan on harvesting between June 9 and June 30 and do not expect to harvest anything after July 4.
If you would like to reserve some fresh Blenheim apricots, please email us at email@example.com. Fresh apricots can be picked up at the ranch or at any of the Farmer's Markets we attend.
May 11, 2016 - The apricots are sizing up nicely. The will be big and almost flawless, but not abundant.
Harvest typically happens in late June/early July. For a few weeks during the harvest, fresh Blenheim apricots will be available. Fresh apricots do not ship well, so fresh apricots have to be picked up in person or at any one of the Farmer's Markets we attend.

The new crack out of walnuts are in! Due to the weather and drought issues, we are experiencing a very low amount of halves (cracked out of the shell). In past years, we have had tons of halves, which are big pieces. This year they are not there. They continue to be organically grown, beautiful, and so tasty. Just giving everyone a heads up!
