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.

Walnuts (Chandler Variety)

Our fabulous new crop of 2020 Walnuts are excellent.

They are truly the best walnuts you'll ever eat!  (Everyone says they'll never eat the store bought ones again)

They are light halves and pieces, Chandler variety, clean, blond-colored, and

have a wonderful "no-bite" buttery flavor. 

The secret to good walnuts is to keep them refrigerated.

They will hold in the refrigerator (never the freezer) for a year.

Available in bulk.

New studies show people who  eat nuts every day live longer, are healthier, and slimmer than those who don't eat nuts much or at all.

With that said, here's a little more help to really enjoy these heart-healthy goodies as we have the best premium walnuts around!!

**Our walnuts were certified organic until 2005...we've not changed our farming practices, just quit the certifying and paperwork fees that go with organic walnuts.

  1. Continuous high quality

    Posted by Peggy Bloomfield on Jun 21st 2020

    I am buying walnuts from Apricot King since many years and even bring them as gifts to my family in Europe.I send them to friends in the US as well.They are so good, I want to share them.
    They are delicious, never fails.
    Thank you Apricot King!

  2. Delicious healthy walnuts!

    Posted by Martha on Jun 6th 2020

    Excellent walnuts that are delicious and good for you. They are the very best quality.

  3. Wonderful walnuts

    Posted by Patty Evans on May 18th 2020

    There is no comparison to these walnuts. When I moved and could no longer get them at the Farmer's Market, I tried ones from the grocery store and some from Costco. Once you have roasted and tasted the walnuts from Apricot King, you can never go back. I discovered them online and now I am very happy again.
    The thing is you don't know there is a difference until you eat them. When I was visiting my girlfriend in Baltimore, MD and wanted to toast some walnuts to break up and put on my beans or Ezekial cereal, she gave me the typical Diamond brand found in Safeway that she uses for her baking. No matter how I roasted them, they had absolutely no taste. It was just awful. When she visited me, I gave her some AK toasted walnuts and she was shocked by the difference. You will like these walnuts.

  4. Very rich and consistent taste

    Posted by JanA on May 13th 2020

    This is my second purchase, and this time I bought the big bag, because these are wonderful walnuts - no hint of that bitterness that walnuts sometimes have, and every one in my first batch was perfect. I've been buying walnuts in bulk at my local natural foods store, which are better than many packaged ones, but they vary in quality and taste from batch to batch.
    These are divine, and totally worth the extra effort and the shipping cost. Life is short - why not buy the best!

  5. Yum

    Posted by R.D. on May 7th 2020

    Great snack alone or paired with the dried prunes and Blenheim apricots.
    Thank you Apricot King

  6. Delicious

    Posted by Unknown on May 5th 2020

    I live in New York and have been disappointed in the walnuts I’ve been buying. I’m not sure where they come from. I love apricots, so while on the apricot king website i saw that you also sell walnuts. I bought a bag and they are delicious. I’ve already purchased another three bags. I love the apricots as well. I am now a loyal customer.

  7. Delicious, fresh walnuts!

    Posted by Cecilia Rivas Schuermann on May 4th 2020

    Light colored walnuts, showing their freshness!

  8. Fresh, Crunchy but Tender

    Posted by Robin Parker Meredith on Apr 22nd 2020

    I have a big bag of these walnuts on hand all year. They are a great snack alone, paired with the apricots or prunes when I'm not adding them to cookie dough, scones, cakes and salads.

  9. Best nuts!

    Posted by Kathy on Apr 21st 2020

    I've been purchasing almonds and walnuts from the Apricot King for years ever since I discovered them at the Moraga Farmers Market. These nuts are are so fresh, it's like they just came out of the shell. I have to keep one bag for baking as my husband will go through a bag a week. I was relieved to find them on line during the shelter in place and received a much welcome package a few days later.

  10. Yum! Best walnuts ever.

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 19th 2020

    Your walnuts are always fresh. We have been ordering them from you as we run out, over about 3-4 years. They are never bitter or dried out, and they don't hurt my tongue as other walnuts we have tried over the years..We tried your chocolate covered walnuts last time we ordered - they are sooo good.
