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.

SlipPits Whole Apricots (8 lbs. Bulk)

 Slippits have returned.  (after a seven month absence)

We take pride in making a beautiful, luscious, whole apricot we call the Cadillac of the Line, The Slippits!

We like to say not every apricot can grow up to be a SLIPPIT....but out of the 100 tons of fresh

Blenheims we harvested, we picked out the prettiest and the biggest to go on to be our slippits.

  •  The  apricots are sulphured whole and dried for 3-5 days. 
  •  This gives them a deeper flavor just like in the old days when people canned and put a pit in the jar for flavor.

       That's a real thing, the pit itself has a flavor.

  • The pits are  gently slipped out (by hand -each and-every-single-one), washed, and voila!


2018 yielded very small fruit......so don't expect huge Slippits...... Medium to large in size.

Slippies remain the CotQueen's favorite apricot.
