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.

Product Reviews

  1. "Simply" the Best

    Posted by Linda on Sep 27th 2015

    The whole family love slabs and can't stop eating them. Very happy with this years crop.
    Thank you for offering such superior apricots.

  2. Fabulous!

    Posted by Deb, Coventry RI on Sep 16th 2015

    These are simply the best apricots available! Great for snacking and baking, perfectly sweet and ripe, and at great prices. Down with Turkish "apricots", up with California!

  3. Been years since I've had "real" apricots...

    Posted by Nancy, Hawaii on Jul 19th 2015

    I just picked up the apricots at my post office. I am so stoked!!! They're all perfect and thanks for the additional 8oz package to even out the shipping. I am so very glad to find a source to get great apricots. It's been YEARS!! since we've had "real" apricots. We can only get "turkish" apricots here....which has no true apricot taste, so I don't buy those. Thank you, thank you. We will surely enjoy them.

  4. Stock up!

    Posted by Laura S., Manassas, VA on Jul 19th 2015

    I stock up with a three month supply. Simply Slabs is the best! I can hardly stop eating them! Moist, tasty, sweet and oh sooooo good! Better than anything we can get at our local stores. Apricot King beats the price of the other CA grower. Patty makes me feel like one of the family with her little hand written notes on my packing slip. I order through the website and the shipment arrives in less than a week.

  5. Amazing apricots!

    Posted by Brittany D. Chico, CA on Jul 19th 2015

    Amazing apricots, best ever.

  6. Takes me back to growing up in an apricot orchard....

    Posted by John T, Groveville, NJ on Jul 19th 2015

    My Grandparents owned an apricot orchard when I was growing up and we used to dry apricots every season. These slabs from the Apricot King, take me back to those days. These are the best I have ever found after many years of trying dried apricots. I usually by 6 pounds just so I can have a good stock on hand. Sweet, flavorful, and just like I remember what good dried apricots should taste like. Enjoy some, you will not be disappointed.

  7. Have me spoiled for anything I can find in the stores!

    Posted by Barbara, Campbell, CA on Jul 19th 2015

    I bought these at the Sunday Farmers Market. They have spoiled me for anything I can find in the stores. Real apricots (not the overly sweet Turkish ones). They must be picked when ripe, not before, because they have just the right amount of sweetness and they are moist. Love them!

  8. They are really addictive!

    Posted by Linda, Marble Falls, TX on Jul 19th 2015

    Purchased these jewels at the Farmers Market in Santa Cruz. Sorry I only bought the 8oz. package. Looked for them at the Los Gatos Farmers Market and was sorry I could not find them there. I will be ordering from this website soon. They really are addictive.

  9. They are worth every penny!

    Posted by Paul, USA on Jul 19th 2015

    I eat a lot of slab apricots every year - easily over 150lbs by myself. I keep a box in my office at all times and grab handfuls of slabs all day long. I've been buying bulk slabs from a competitor, but when they were out of stock, I bought your slabs. They are worth every penny as they are sweet and perfectly ripe.

  10. The best by a big margin!

    Posted by Roger, Bothell, WA on Jul 19th 2015

    Of the many dried apricots I've eaten since the early fifties, these are the best by a big margin.
