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.
When will they be ready?Predicting July 1....til July 20thAlways worth the wait.
Out of the chocolate dipped apricots.Besides it's too hot to ship these anyplace.And believe it or not, Guittards is out of our exceptionally fine chocolate. We still have puddles, milk chocolates, almond toffee, and pastels.Be careful when ordering......we won't send it until the weather cools down in your area.
They're green as grass right now......but let's see what this week of HOT weatherbrings to these Blenheims. My best estimate is July 1 for fresh. We're a few weekslater than last year.I know they'll be flawless, huge, juicy, and all Blenheims.

Ahhhhhhh...at last..... our Jumbo Barlette Pears are back in stock.Did you know pears have more fiber than even prunes?Delicious and sweet......order away.
We've run out of our best seller: SLABS.Everyone has recognized that these are the sweeeeetest of all the Blenheims.Overripe-paper thin and requiring the most effort to produce,these cots are sold out for the season.Now it's up to the pickers......the key to slabs is to pick them when they're fully ripe.
This is the question we get several times a day.Here's our prediction......June 24th.Hollister Blenheims are the ones worth waiting for!The crop will be stupendous. Over 100 tons fresh.Wish us well.......We'll keep you posted.No....we don't allow you pick.No....we never mail or ship fresh apricots.Yes....you can get them at the ranch or at the Farmer's Markets.No later [...]
