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.

Simply Slabs (8 lbs. Bulk)


Classic slabs are overripe, sticky, and full of the sweetest flavor.

These are machine cut, delicate, thin slabs....very sweet and very  tender. 

  We  keep these separated from the rest of the crop....you'll notice their unique color and flatness.

  Our crop produced several tons of  slabs.....it was hot for several days before harvest....

so the yield on overripe fruit was excellent. 

The Blenheim slabs are the ultimate #1 choice of apricot aficionados everywhere!

Keep refrigerated.


It just doesn't get any more delicious or decadent

 than our Simply  Slabs.

  1. Blenheim Apricots are the best

    Posted by Nino and Barbara Cefalu on May 6th 2020

    Nobody in any store has these deep flavored delicious Apricots. The Gonzales family has been able to duplicate the quality established in the Santa Clara County years ago. Thank You Patti and Gary for growing these wonderful flavor Apricots.

    The Cefalu Family is a customer for life.

  2. The best!

    If you love apricots, there's nothing else that comes close to Apricot King's Blenheims.

  3. I can't stop eating them!

    Posted by John on Apr 2nd 2020

    I've been buying from Apricot King for a while and the slabs are where I've finally landed. Such a flavor blast, I can't stop eating them! Gave a lot of my previous order away as xmas gifts, but this 8lb batch is for me.

  4. Best dried apricots you will find

    Posted by Bob R on Feb 24th 2020

    Thanks for the quick shipping and delicious slabs. We love these and use them as gifts for friends.
    Made another batch of muffins with diced slabs yesterday. A favorite of ours.

  5. Awesome!

    Posted by PJ on Dec 11th 2019

    Love, love, love, those slabs. Soft and sweet. Apricot King is the best! We have been happy customers for more than 16 years. Wonderful dried fruit, and wonderful, friendly, family-owned business.

  6. These Slabs are Simply THE BEST!!!!

    Posted by Grateful longtime customer on Dec 11th 2019

    A bite of heavenly sunshine in each slab for the rest of the year...if they last that long! These are, hands down, the sweetest, choicest cuts of low-sulfured dried apricots I've found anywhere. People marvel when we share them and they want to know where we get them from--because you can't get ones that taste this good anywhere in Hawaii. Thank you, Patti and family for lovingly caring for your orchards and sharing your bounty with the rest of us who cannot be there to help you grow your beauties.

  7. Excellent product

    Posted by cc on Dec 8th 2019

    I grew up in Souithern California with a few apricot trees in the yard...they are the only thing I miss about California!!! These dried apricots are the next best thing. Use mostly for holiday baking...unsurpassed flavor!

  8. A true delight

    Posted by Tom B. from Lower Slower Delaware on Nov 23rd 2019

    This is my 2nd year for buying from the Gonzales family. Eight pounds of Simply Slabs this year. I got them last week and have already eaten a good pound. Sweet yet tart is the best way to describe them.
    They are a great replacement for raisins in my Polish Babka .

  9. Absolutey the Best!

    Posted by N Carol on Oct 29th 2019

    These are the best dried apricots I have found anywhere. I buy in bulk every year so I can share with my family. The grandchildren eat them like candy & I use them to make heavenly apricot bread during the holidays. I look forward to placing my order every year.

  10. Awesome Apricots

    Posted by Cheryl on Sep 9th 2019

    I have been purchasing apricots from the Apricot King for over 20 years. They are the best I have ever tasted. They are moist and sweet. I typical eat 12 lbs a year. I use to get them at the Farmers Market in Santa Cruz, California. Now I have them shipped.
