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.

Enjoy!

Dried Blenheim Apricots - Fancy/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 striped, stand-up 14oz. gift bag.

  1. Fantastic Quality & Taste !!

    Wonderful product. Don’t hesitate to upgrade to these. There is no comparison.

  2. Best Apricots,USA

    Posted by Martha Medich on Nov 8th 2019

    I have been buying from Apricotking for many years, as did my late sisters. Wether eating them as dried fruit, and mostly for baking, pies (yummiest) or traditional apricot holiday cookies, there is no apricot with better quality or taste. Recently saw in a supermarket near, (Pittsburgh) Blenheim , tried them, but no, they did not have the same genuine taste and texture, color. In addition to the apricots, the dried plums are also of a very special quality and taste. For the very finest and if you want to impress your family and friends, only Apricotking can meet the gourmet standard.

  4. Best dried apricots ever

    Amazing taste and texture
    Will be ordering more
    Grew up in California and had no idea these existed.

  5. Best Apricots Ever

    Posted by Janet Nock on Nov 2nd 2019

    Did a taste test with two other types of apricots: Turkish and California apricots bought at Fastachi in Boston. The Turkish were totally inferior to Apricotking. The Fastachi California were much better than the Turkish, of course, but were not nearly as succulent and tasty.

  6. Apricot King Apricots are THE BEST!

    Posted by Marijane on Nov 2nd 2019

    You haven’t lived until you try these apricots! They are large, sweet and delicious. I’ve ordered many times and they never disappoint. I store them in the fridge and they keep well for months! I just read one of the reviewers that said they freeze them! What a great idea! I’ll be trying that...

  7. Beyond amazingly delicious

    Posted by Josh Kolchins on Nov 2nd 2019

    If you love tart, tangy, chewy apricots, you must buy these! These wonderful Blenheims are the best. The folks at Apricot King have the most delicious apricots I've ever had. Do yourself a big favor and buy as much as you can.

  8. Extra Fancy

    Posted by Susan Brennan on Oct 31st 2019

    Having grown up in Santa Clara Valley in the 50's & 60's. Everyone I knew 'cut cots', it's what we did. Great memories of simpler times. Only cots I will ever eat/bake with. Yes, they are at their best dried! Buying them for years. Thank you for keeping the Blenheim from extinction!! Your hard work is appreciated.

  9. Some of the best!

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 30th 2019

    Loved them, very delirious!

  10. Totally different from Turkish apriots

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 29th 2019

    I compared a Turkish apricot and yours and it was so different. No comparison
