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. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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 .

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Great tasting apricots

    Posted by Bob R on Sep 7th 2019

    We love the slab apricots and use them frequently to share with friends and family. They do wonders with quick shipments too. You will never be disappointed.

  7. Slabs are so delicious.

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 23rd 2019

    Simply slabs are delicious, nutritious and mildly processed leaving them tender to chew and sweet to taste. It doesn't get better. My whole family enjoys them. We believe they are an anti-cancerous food. So there ya go.

    A very happy customer.

    Many happy customers.

  8. Simply The best there is!

    Posted by Bob on Jun 4th 2019

    I have been buying their Apricots for over 20 years and there is nothing close to their quality and taste. And they’re really a first class company and very professional to deal with!

  9. Taste from childhood!

    Posted by Chris W. on Feb 26th 2019

    I grew up in California apricot country, so I know my apricots. I had a hard time finding good dried until I received a package as a gift from my sister. THE BEST! Sweet and soft! I am now w a lifetime customer!

  10. Super Moist and Delicious

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 25th 2019

    The Simply Slab apricots are the best I've found anywhere. I order them in bulk year after year and share with my family. They are always very soft, moist and dried to perfection. We can hardly wait for the new crop to be ready each year.
