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 Superior Slabs

The answer to the question "Which apricots are the sweetest?"

SLABS...ALWAYS SLABS....if you can find them.


 Slabs have the highest sugar content of all the apricots because they're longer on the tree...picked when they're soft and overripe.

Ours are machine cut, paper-thin, and delicate...even though they're the most labor intensive to produce.

These cots are separated from the rest of the pack by their unique color and flat-ness.

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

Low in sulphur, so eat them, or refrigerate them.   16 oz bags or in bulk.

We eliminated our Superior Slab item because all of these are  truly Superior Slabs.

  1. Most delicious apricots

    Posted by Anna on Aug 12th 2020

    These really are the most delicious apricots! They are so flavorful and moist, unlike anything else!

  2. Slices of Heaven

    Posted by Tom on Aug 5th 2020

    I have loved dried apricots for over 60 years. Unfortunately, California apricots have disappeared from grocery stores and been replaced with Turkish dried apricots. They are an unacceptable substitute.!!

    Fortunately I found Apricot King online and have been ordering them for years. They ship well down here in Florida and they are the best! Thanks for all your time and effort to turn out an outstanding product!

    Good color, clean, and with a tartness that gives it some "spark". Have their other apricots, regular and fancy i believe. Eventually will see if i can taste a real difference.

    Color wise, they are all beautiful, and no pit pieces, or brown areas like some other "brands"

  4. Delicious

    Posted by Sam on Jul 25th 2020

    True California apricots, perfectly ripe. You can taste & feel the difference. They don't sell these in grocery stores around here, so I'm very happy!

  5. Excellent product

  6. fantastic flavor

    Posted by Pat on Jul 15th 2020

    I live on the east coast and it is not possible to get good apricots much less Blenheims. Your slabs are my favorite snack.
    thank you for making them available.

  7. Best Apricot Ever!

    Posted by Lise S. on Jul 9th 2020

    My husband received some wonderful apricots and other assorted dried fruits for Father's Day. He even shared them with me as we always share goodies. We loved them so much that after rationing the wonderful gift for a month, we ordered some more.
    These are the best apricots! I had a "Madeleine" moment when I tasted the first apricot. It took me back years ago when a patient of mine who was a manager of an apricot farm in Brentwood, California invited me to go to his farm to pick apricots. I went with my friend and we climbed on a ladder and picked some apricots. The manager had already picked two cases for us. We went home and invited two more friends to bake pies and make jam and eat the rest of the apricots. We left a few for our husbands. This was such a wonderful day! Thank you Patti and Gary for bringing back this wonderful memory with your delicious apricots!

  8. Best Tasting Dried Fruit

    Posted by Ginger on Jul 6th 2020

    The apricot slabs and the dried nectarines are the best I've ever tasted. The ApricotKing dried fruit reminds me of the dried fruit I ate in Santa Clara valley as a child. The mushy stuff sold in major grocery stores is vastly inferior and inedible compared to the ApricotKing dried fruits.

  9. Consistent great quality

    Posted by Sandra on Jul 6th 2020

    Apricot King has my business when it comes to purchasing dried fruit products and my fav, dried apricots! These slab apricots are wonderful quality and outstanding taste! I ' used to ' purchase dried fruit from other sources and they barely compare as fruit!!! Thank you Apricot King for an outstanding products.

  10. The best

    Posted by Pat on Jul 6th 2020

    Your apricots are wonderful -- absolutely the best!
