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. Superbly sublime slabs.

    Posted by Mark Ward on Jul 5th 2020

    I don't want to tell the truth about these slabs--if I do then they will be all bought up and then there's less for me. So stay away and don't buy them.

  2. Apricots don't get better than this!

    Posted by A California transplant in New England on Jun 20th 2020

    As a kid growing up in the Bay Area, every year I looked forward to sitting in apricot trees shoveling the sweet, soft fresh fruit until I couldn't eat any more. Apricot King's Blenheim slab apricots might be even better!

  3. Best ever!

    Posted by Jeannine Gallant on Jun 14th 2020

    We had apricot trees as a kid and dried them every year. I have not found any as good until now! This is my second year buying them in bulk. I LOVE THEM! Forget the junk at the supermarkets. I have always said for years most people don't even know what a real dried apricot should taste like. Once you have these you will be hooked!

  4. World-class delicacy

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 13th 2020

    These are the most exquisite dried fruit I’ve ever tasted. Juicy, sticky sweet, tart and complex all at once. I used to eat chocolate for dessert after dinner; now I just have a handful of superior slabs. Worth every single penny.

  5. The best

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 8th 2020

    My family sent me a package and now I blame them for my inability to buy the bland ones at my local food market. They spoiled me!
    I’m ordering from apricot king since. I send them as gifts now, too.

  6. Sweetest Dried Apricots Ever

    Posted by Lynn Ritter on Jun 7th 2020

    When I was growing up, I cut apricots next door on big, wooden trays in preparation for their being dried. So I am familiar with the first step. As an adult, one of my favorite snacks is nuts and dried fruit. Your dried apricots are extremely sweet and moist--the perfect accompaniment to nuts.

  7. No words other than YESSSSS!!!!!

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 7th 2020

    Just so good. I could write a whole bunch - but it wouldn't be enough. Just like these slabs. omg so good.

  8. Forgot how good apricots can taste

    Posted by Leslie P on Jun 4th 2020

    These are wonderful. The concentrated flavor beats anything you can get in stores. So delicious and so worth the wait to ship across the country!

  9. Amazing

    Posted by Unknown on May 30th 2020

    Rich, sweet apricots. Heaven!

  10. Now I recall how much I love apricots!

    Posted by Kathy K on May 30th 2020

    After a long winter of having only tasteless Turkish apricots, I was delighted to receive slab apricots as a gift. They were so delicious, I ordered some more when they were gone. Wonderful to know where I can still get real apricots!
