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

All Blenheims - All sun dried - All soft and moist.

Everyone's favorite "Home Grown In The Flavor Zone" dried Blenheim apricots. Labeled as the Orchard Blend, this is a blend of our slabs, fancy, extra fancy, and choice dried apricots. Just great good-eating apricots, high in iron and potassium. Preserved with a low amount of sulphur dioxide.

They should be refrigerated. They can be frozen.

For the past several years we've run out of our best selling apricots. We predict the cupboards will be bare in mid-May.

  1. Delicious

    Posted by Aussiegirl on Sep 29th 2018

    I grew up in Australia where apricots are a favorite fruit. I love apricots both fresh and dried. These are the best dried ones I have found and remind me of the delicious apricots I grew up eating. So glad I found Apricotking!!

  2. Tasty Nature's Best!

    Posted by Sharyn H. on Sep 29th 2018

    Delicious, texture and flavor are perfect! Great natural food to have in your refrigerator. Also makes a great gift.

  3. My Third Time to Order

    Posted by Mike Noble on Sep 23rd 2018

    Love the giant dried apricots, they go to quickly. My regular order is two of the two pound bags. Love the product. Will be back for more.

  4. It’s a given!

    Posted by Pat. Kaminsky on Aug 25th 2018

    Haven’t opened my apricots yet, but I’ve been ordering them for ages and have never been disappointed in the quality and freshness (if that can be said of a dried fruit). They have never been anything but plump, luscious, and intense in flavor. They are a MUST in my pantry.

  5. nothing better

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 21st 2018

    I've been ordering these apricots online for years, and at this point I can't even bring myself to eat any other kind of apricot. They are simply superior to anything else out there, and if you love apricots, these are the ones for you!

  6. Blenheim's are BEST!

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 15th 2018

    The Apricot King dried Blenheim apricots are fabulous. I thought the dried apricots sold a the Berkeley Bowl in San Francisco were the best ever. But the Apricot King Blenheims are just as good. And I am a total dried apricot snob, who has eaten them in Turkey and Israel and Greece and lots of places. The Apricot King Blenheims are as good as any I have ever eaten anywhere.

  7. Best apricots I have ever eaten

    Posted by Larry Larson on Jul 7th 2018

    I like getting 2-2lb bags and freezing one for later. Only problem it doesn’t stay in the freezer very long. I really enjoy these apricots year round.

  8. California Blenheim Apricots Are the Best in the World

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 6th 2018

    There simply is nothing to equal the flavor of these delicious Blenheim apricots. The texture of the fruit is amazing as well. We also enjoy your apricot jam. I grew up in California and several family members and friends had small apricot orchards on their country properties. When we moved to South Carolina over 30 years ago, it was impossible to find anything but Turkish apricots, which are disappointing and good only for baking. We hope Apricot King will be around for a long, long time.

    This is one of the few food luxuries we enjoy!

  9. Excellent dried fruit

    Posted by Lynda on Jul 6th 2018

    I love the dried slab apricots and prunes! Always perfectly moist and delicious.

    I live in the East. Around here you only find Turkish apricots these days. Over the years, I bought box after box of Sunsweet dried California Apricots, but, quite a few years ago now, you couldn't find them in the grocery stores anymore. And I kept looking - to no avail. Then I finally reasoned that there must be some California apricots somewhere so I got on the internet and there you were! I'm on my third shipment in the four months I've known about you. I seem to be making up for lost time. These are delicious apricots! Perfectly dried and processed for market. Thank you so much for your efforts. They're most appreciated. You can't imagine how much I've missed the California dried apricot in my life.
