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.

Looking for those PUDDLES?

They're not on the website.......they're being made.  They involve our spectacular apricots, caramel, and chocolate.  We've missed them too, but hope to have them immediately after Thanksgiving.     Puddles will be worth the wait.

Scraping the trays

How do the sticky apricots get off the drying trays, you ask? It takes 15 strong men to scrrrrrrrrrrrape 7000 trays of apricots.....not a job for sissies.  The men (and I'm talking high school kids here)  start at 7 a.m. and get exhausted by 3 p.m.   They've hung in there and I'm very proud of those guys.One more [...]
