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.

Dried Blenheim Apricots - Extra Fancy

Our Extra Fancy are a little bigger, a little fuller, a little more ripe, and a little more spectacular.

It takes a good year with a lot of rain water to make an abundance of extra fancy, large-sized apricots.

In Hollister, California we have had the perfect weather, but not enough rain to make enough that fall into the Extra Fancy category.

These elite Blenheims are hand sorted and presented in a clear stand-up 14oz. gift bag.

  1. Absolutely the best Apricots

    Posted by Terry on Sep 29th 2020

    The title says it all

  2. Please don't tell anyone else

    Posted by Alan on Sep 27th 2020

    I fear that if everyone knew about these perfect apricots, then ApricotKing wouldn't be able to fill my annual order.

  3. They don't come any better!

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 23rd 2020

    I've bought dried apricots from Apricot King for years, and they are always top notch. Great in my morning oatmeal.

  4. Yummy!

    Posted by Barb on Sep 19th 2020

    when you can't get local these are great. Two family members love eating these straight from the bag.

  5. Hands Down the Very Best Apricots Ever

    Posted by Deborah on Sep 12th 2020

    These are just the creamiest, most flavorful, sweet and delicious apricots you'll ever find. They burst with flavor and have a delightful, juicy texture. I am absolutely addicted to their sweetness and appreciate that they are not overly dried out or leathery. Highly recommend to apricot lovers. Worth every penny!

  6. High Praise for the Apricot King

    Posted by Colleen D. on Aug 31st 2020

    What a delightful surprise, the most delicious dried apricots ever. I intended to use them in a jam recipe. And while that would have been excellent, they were much too beautiful to do anything except eat out of hand. I have eaten out of a garden and orchards my whole life and morn the passing of wholesome, clean food. Thanks, Apricotking for a delicious taste from the past.

  7. Best Apricot product on the market

    Posted by Jim on Aug 17th 2020

    My wife and I are so pleased we found Apricotking! We have been buying slip pits, fancy Blenheim cots and other fine products for several years and have always been impressed the quality of the fruit and the service. Cant with until the slippits are available!

  8. Yum!

    Posted by Irene Estelle on Aug 15th 2020

    I always look forward to the three weeks in July when I can find fresh Blenheim apricots, and then feel sad when it's over. Apricot King to the rescue! I get to order and eat succulent dried Blenheims year round.

  9. Absolutely the best!

    Posted by Didi on Aug 1st 2020

    Read about these apricots in a magazine several years ago. If you try these you will never buy another brand. They are delicious plain, with cheese or in baked goods. The apricots are superb. I have never been disappointed with Apricot King’s products.

  10. The Best!!

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 21st 2020

    These are the best apricots. I buy a number of gift bags to share with family & friends. Patti is so helpfull if I get a jam trying to order over the computer.
