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 2018

And now, what you've all been waiting for...the SLABS are back in town!

 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.    (14oz bags)

  1. Soooo Good

    Posted by Tammy on May 4th 2019

    Fell in love with them when they where at the Chico Farmers market. When I found out that I could get them by mail I was thrilled. The taste is awesome. I like them better than fresh apricots.

  2. The best of the best

    Posted by DON on Apr 30th 2019

    Fresh and moist. I've tried many different brands/farms and your apricots are the best!

  3. Best from the West

    Posted by budnjo@thinair.net on Apr 25th 2019

    Moved away from CA

    The King of apricots
    Still reins and sent me mine.

  4. Taste like home

    Posted by Josephine Painter on Apr 21st 2019

    I grew up in San Jose going to the local farmers market and being able to purchase these wonderful cots I live in southern Ca now and I am so glad you have mail service

  5. My kids won;'t eat anything else

    Posted by Livvy on Apr 12th 2019

    We ran out of your excellent apricots. Bought some at Trader Joe's.
    Big mistake. My kids hated them and refused to eat them.
    Said they were "disgusting" and they're 7 & 9.
    Only ApricotKing Cots from now on!

  6. Best dried apricots on earth!

    Posted by Gayle Dukelow on Mar 6th 2019

    Always sweet, juicy, and great distinctive apricot taste.

  7. Best dried fruit money can buy!

    Posted by Kristi Knoblich Palmer on Feb 19th 2019

    These apricots have got it all — soft, juicy, tender, and sweet. You won’t be able to put them down. They make excellent gifts because their story is so unique - an heirloom variety with a super short harvest season and the most delicate of skins, making them a rare treasure.

  8. Only California grown

    Posted by Charles Taylor on Jan 31st 2019

    I have been making cooked apricot pie using my mothers recipe from years past. Most say they are the best apricot pies they have eaten. Although probably not up to my deceased mothers quality, they however, are quite good. I have tried dried apricots from other parts of the world and they just don't measure up to the ones i have received from Apricot King.

  9. The Best Apricots on the Planet

    Posted by Rick on Jan 30th 2019

    I have traveled to many places in the world and had dried fruits in numerous locations. The apricots from Apricot King are simply the best anywhere. I prefer the Slabs for taste, texture and price.

  10. Thanks for your hard work.

    Posted by Dori on Dec 31st 2018

    I love all your products. Thanks for your hard work.

    It shows in the beauty and taste of your apricots.
