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

Everyone's favorite "Home Grown In The Flavor Zone" dried Blenheim apricots. These are a blend of our slabs, fancy, extra fancy, etc. dried apricots. This is our best seller and we're almost out.

We've stopped all the wholesale bulk sales and are saving these babies for our customers. It's hard to be ApricotKing without the Orchard Blend Apricots! Yikes! At least there are still slippits, and unsulphured, and jumbos.

These Blenheims are sun dried, preserved with low sulphur dioxide, and soft and moist. They should be refrigerated to keep moist (if they last that long without being eaten).

Keep refrigerated. They will hold in the freezer for up to one year.

Sorry, not available until 2017 harvest.

  1. Best Dried Apricots Ever!

    Posted by Suzie Burkholder on Mar 5th 2017

    We sadly have moved from California and I now have to order these apricots online rather than picking them up at my local farmers market. Even the shipped apricots are as good as my hand selected farmers market ones. Apricot King is truly the king of apricots. Every bag is fantastic and we are grateful for every bite!

  2. Tangy, mouth-watering perfection

    Posted by Southern Indiana apricot fan on Feb 27th 2017

    Blenheim apricots have been a rare treat for me since childhood. The slightly acidic tang of these apricots have always made them preferable over the more sweetly bland Turkish apricots. I found Apricot King through a web search as part of trying to connect to farmers directly. Those searches also led me to find why I could not find an Indiana farmer selling these apricots and, more disturbingly, that this type of apricot may go the way of other fantastic produce that requires less generic growing conditions. I bought a bulk order first and now have a glass jar of these apricots to greet me when I come home from work to avoid less healthy temptations before dinner is made. Their cheery orange color always brings a smile. They have been fantastic straight out of the jar, for breakfast with oatmeal and yogurt, and in baking. I liked them so much that I just bought my brother-in-law a stash for his birthday and now he is also a fan. I hope that more people will discover these fantastic dried apricots to allow this farm and others like them to survive many many more decades!

  3. No comparison to Turkish imports

    These tasty morsels were ordered in large quantity to last the summer bike season, but now that the seal has been broken, I doubt they'll last thru Memorial Day. Great stuff. Bought the basic cots and the chocolate covered AND chocolate/caramel choices. Terrible temptations to have in my pantry.

  4. Apricot King has the best dried apricots you can get!

    Posted by Debbie Reinhardt on May 17th 2016

    I have been ordering these for quite some time and they are delicious! My only complaint is that they run out of the diced and the larger quantities too soon. The walnuts, chocolate covered almonds and the jam are wonderful too!

  5. A taste of home

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 24th 2016

    I'm originally from California and now live in Colorado. I used to always buy these apricots at our Saturday farmers market in Chico. Since moving I really missed them. I was thrilled when I found them online. These are the best dried fruit as are the prunes. I recommend them completely

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. An excellent product!

    Posted by Judy S. on Feb 22nd 2016

    The dried apricots are an excellent product; the service is very efficient, and it's all done with a personal touch! Thank you.

  9. Apricots are the best here!

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

  10. 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!!!
