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 (100% Slab Apricots)

Oh boy......The slabs are unique....Classic slabs are overripe, sticky, and full of the sweetest flavor.

Hand-cut, paper-thin, overripe slabs are the best tasting in the world.

These cots are separated from the rest of the pack by their unique color and flat-ness, these Blenheim slabs are the ultimate #1 choice of apricot aficionados everywhere!

Keep refrigerated.

Sorry, unavailable until the 2017 harvest.

    You guys never fail me. I'm a devout dried fruit lover and these apricot slabs are the best ever.

  2. So Sweet!

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 4th 2016

    Apricot slabs are perfect, healthy treat right out of the bag.

  3. Wonderful

    Posted by Lani on Oct 6th 2016

    Love these apricots. Very sweet and tasty. Would definitely buy them again.

  4. The Best!

    Posted by Laura S. on Sep 26th 2016

    Love the Slabs soft, tender and oh so sweet. Cannot get enough of them.

  5. Slab cots make great fruit spread, pie, and baby puree

    Posted by Barbara B. on Sep 16th 2016

    These apricots are so moist and sweet straight from the package. After soaking in a bit of water (just enough to be absorbed) they make a great fruit spread that needs minimal sugar and no pectin. I've water bath canned them and made freezer jam. I also make a puree for my grandson and add it to plain yogurt. The reconstituted apricots make an amazing apricot pie. When I'm not near the San Jose Farmers' Markets, I order them online and have them shipped to my other home. They keep well in the freezer.

  6. Why buy candy?

    Posted by Janet on Sep 10th 2016

    These sweet, moist apricots are "way better than candy".....and good for you, too. Blenheim apricots are unparalleled!

  7. Apricot Slabs

    Posted by Dan Muzik on Aug 1st 2016

    I have had many dehydrated apricots over the years and have not never had anything as good as Apricot Kings. They are moist, sweet and addicting. You can't go wrong buying these. The folks that own Apricot King are a small family owned business. I would rather buy from them than a corporation and their product is the best you can buy.

  8. Best in the World - traveled and sampled - simply the BEST

    Posted by Mick on May 1st 2016

    I have traveled the world over and always tried the apricots, searching for the best. Having found them at a local market about 4 years ago... (should have been sooner!!) I have been a loyal patron and frequently by a large bag of slab dried and the apricot pepper jelly. You won't be disappointed.

  9. Best in Texture, Color

    Posted by Jeff on Jan 30th 2016

    Soft, beautiful, worthy of giving as gifts to very loved ones. Not quite as acidic ("bright") as hoped, but laps better than anything one can buy in a grocery store. Definitely get the slabs. May try bulk purchase in a couple weeks, after I consume the five-plus pounds I just bought.

  10. Best Ever

    Posted by SANDY on Jan 5th 2016

    I respect how you all care for and prepare the apricots. They are soft and delicious.
