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 - Orchard Blend

They're Baaaaaaaack!!   Cut on June 28, sun-dried, scraped off at lightening speed, washed, re-dried, cleaned, packed, labeled and back on the internet on July 11.

Why that's unheard of! We did a special early cut for all the peeps going through withdrawal and needing their apricot fix.  Here you go...

Everyone's favorite "Home Grown In The Flavor Zone" dried Blenheim apricots.  Labeled as they Orchard Blend, this is a blend of our slabs, fancy, extra fancy, etc. dried apricots. 

Just great good-eatin' apricots....high in iron and potassium. 

Our 2017 Crop is all Blenheims,  all  sun dried, preserved with low sulphur dioxide, and soft and moist. They should be refrigerated. They can be frozen.

  1. A taste of home

    Posted by Randy Oyler on Mar 9th 2016

    Growing up in Hollister Ca, I was always surrounded by Apricots so it was a regular thing.
    My first job was cutting apricots at the age of 9 slicing my fingers open trying to go through a box was very hard.
    The first house we lived in was the La' Bamba house on Southside Rd where the movie was filmed.
    Back then it was all about the Slabs. The cots were free back then I miss that.
    I now live in San Diego and this is the place to get the best Blenheim apricot's Thank you!
    A taste of home.

  2. Freshest dried apricots under the CA sun!

    Posted by Vivian and Jim Kalchbrenner on Feb 29th 2016

    We have enjoyed these apricots for years. We were introduced to them by family who live in the area. We were given them as a gift several times and then ordered them on our own. We even used them in gift bags with your almonds when our daughter was married on the West Coast in 2010. They were enjoyed by so many of our guests.

  3. Apricots are the best here!

    Posted by Marcy on Jan 29th 2016

    Repeat customer, the flavor of these are second to none. Used in my products, it makes the best........better!

  4. So sweet, what a nice taste of summer

    Posted by Robin Sacks on Dec 21st 2015

    I can hardly stop eating these. They are soft, sweet, moist and chewy all at the same time. I'm trying to save enough to use in a holiday cookie recipe,. But it.s hard not to eat them all. Yum!!!

  5. The Best

    Posted by Jim Tomlinson on Dec 19th 2015

    Have always preferred California apricots over Mediterranean (Turkey) ones. Now I know specifically the best California apricots to keep in the house. Eat just 5-6 a day for extended pleasure.

  6. Best Ever Apricots

    Posted by Christina on Dec 15th 2015

    We keep Apricot King dried Blenheim blend in the refrigerator at all times. Recently our adult son asked, while chowing down on these jewels, where I bought them, lamenting that he'd bought dried apricots at the supermarket that just didn't come close. I told him our source and ordered a large bag we'll present on Christmas morning along with the business card.

  7. First Time Delight

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 9th 2015

    Wonderful. First time ordering. Will definitely be purchasing more.

  8. Never disappoints

    Posted by Julie on Nov 26th 2015

    We've been ordering for years and have never found anything better anywhere. We recommend Apricot King to all our friends and family.

  9. A taste of home

    Posted by Randy Oyler on Nov 16th 2015

    Yes I grew up in Hollister Ca.. My first job was cutting apricots on Southside Rd at the Skow ranch when I was about 8 years old. It took me all day to do just one box while the experience cutters would whip through those boxes so fast. I remember cutting myself many times but didn't mind, It was a great time. It was all about the Slabs .. So here I am at the age of 47 living in San Diego and missing the Apricots from my early years. Thanks again for the quality cots.

  10. I LOVE apricot king apricots!!!

    Posted by Neal on Nov 2nd 2015

    I bought 3 different sizes/types of apricots on this order and all are wonderful. I discovered Apricot King about 2 years ago. Now I don't have to sit and long for really wonderful apricots anymore.
