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.

Gourmet Slip Pits (Whole Apricots)

Our Gourmet Slippits often referred to as the "Cadillac" of our line!

Slippits are the largest apricots picked ripe and dried whole.

After a few days, the pit is gently slipped out, creating the fabulous Gourmet Slip Pit Blenheim Apricot.

These are very ripe and each and every one of them is like a meal. 

Limited supplies available as not every apricot can grow up to be a slippit. 

Magnificent presentation for a unique, stunning gift.  

Eat or keep refrigerated.

    These gourmet slip pits make a gorgeous gift for birthdays, holidays, or any special occasion -- or just a gift for yourself, for sublime enjoyment. They're so plump and tender and rich with apricot flavor, and the package is simple but lovely.

  8. A taste I'd lost since childhood

    Posted by John Butler on Nov 16th 2019

    Hiya! When I was a kid my folks were in graduate school at UCal Berkeley. We took car camping trips around California most summers. I remember growing up thinking that apricots were really great hand-eating fruit.
    But then we moved away from California (WA and AZ, mostly) and I learned that apricots - even great Yakima Valley apricots weren't what I'd remembered. Never could figure that out.
    Couple of years ago I read a review of Blenheim apricots and decided to give them a try. I can't get to CA during Apricot season, but I found Apricot King's terrific dried fruit and thought I'd re-discovered that taste from my childhood. After a few years being satisfied with their regular apricots (Hey - it's the Scotsman in me) I decided to splurge on the slip-pit dried Apricots.
    They're that taste I'd been searching for. OMG. On the web site they've got an account of how Turkish Apricots are the marketing replacement for Blenheims - and that accounts for why most Americans aren't really fond of apricots in general.
    I almost hate to tell you this - 'cause some years Apricot King runs out of slip-pits - but the Apricot King slip-pit dried Blenheim apricots are heaven in a morsel. They actually beat Raspberries in my own mind. AND - they last in the frig until you can get to them.
    Add to that that these are really nice folks - and all the other products I've tried are tops in their respective categories - and you'll need look no further for dried fruit and nuts. I put Apricot King in my Contact list to make it easier to remember them. I wonder if these folks grew the Apricots I was so fond of when I was a kid taking car camping trips? But, no matter, you and anyone you share them with will love 'em.
