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!

    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.

  2. The Best!!

    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.

  3. Wow...too good!

    Posted by Sandra on Jul 6th 2020

    I am rating the best as I don't think I have every had this 'blenheim' variety fruit before but these dried bits of sweet and tart are more like candy! 'Meaty' and way too tasty to last very long around me. In the 'olden days' my mom had to hide dried apricots from me or they would be gone in a day or two and those...were more like leather. So you can imagine the willpower it takes to pace myself with this beautiful, tasty bits of flavor and texture! Thank you Apricot King!!!

  4. Awesome Apricots Always

    Posted by Linda Harrow on Jun 28th 2020

    The Apricot King products are always delicious. The only problem is how quickly they disappear because we eat them! The sticky sweetness matches their aroma. We love fancy, extra fancy, slab, leathers, every apricot is perfect.

  5. The shipping costs prevented me from ordering these in the past

    Posted by Michele G on Jun 28th 2020

    ApricotKing offered 10% off so I threw caution to the wind. I ordered Fancy Apricots, 8# of walnuts, prunes, almonds and Apricot hot pepper sauce. I haven’t tried the sauce yet but everything else was outstanding. I will order again.

  6. A Taste of Heaven

    Posted by Laurie from Long Beach on Jun 27th 2020

    This is what apricots should taste like. Thank you so much for the delicious treat. I will return again an again.

  7. the best apricots

    Posted by david on Jun 16th 2020

    When you eat these apricots you will never want to go back to store bought, and will savor every bite

  8. Best dried apricots I've ever eaten!

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 14th 2020

    The apricots are big and have just the right sweet, tart flavor. I am planning to order more.

  9. Amazing taste!

    Posted by Erica on May 26th 2020

    I'm blown away by the taste of these apricots. I agree with the other poster - no way one bag is going to last much longer. I'll be ordering more!

  10. Actually out of 5, I would rate them as a 10!

    Posted by Craig Alden on May 26th 2020

    I’m going to need more and more and etc., etc.
