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.

Pruning 7,000 trees on one orchard

Pruning 7,000 trees on one orchard

Posted by

We're busy pruning by hand the more than 7,000 Blenheim Apricot trees

on our newest orchard.   It's in it's 5th year of production and growing 

vigorously.  We're keeping the trees short (so as not to need aa ladder to pick).

I need to say: all of this pruning and shaping is done by hand.  It's an art form and 

not your average man can do it.  I'm thank my guys for doing such a good job.

Now ....onto the clean up of branches from 7,000 trees covring the ground.
