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.

Busy Busy Busy

My apologies to the Puddle fans......a few came out, then the chocolatemachine broke, then the chocolate man ran out of dark chocolates......Ipromise they're coming.  We were forced to do them individually and it's taken forever.  We're promised that the chocolate man's machine if fixed, and his dark chocolate is flowing.Worth waiting for .............for sure.
