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.

Bulk BAKING Blenheims

Usually sold to bakeries, these are our Standard Blenheim Apricots.


We've made them available to you bakers, cookers,

jammers, pastry chefs, and the fried-pie Southerners.

(This picture is unedited so you know exactly what you're getting). 

They will be perfect for pies, jams, desserts, & toppings. 

Standard sized apricots are a little tart & still having that killer Blenheim flavor.

You'll be adding sugar anyway........and at this price?  

Freeze or refrigerate and they'll last forever.



Available in bulk.  10 lbs per box.  One box. One bag.




Product Reviews

  1. The best (again!)

    Posted by Juliann Goldman on Jun 12th 2023

    This was my second order of 10 lbs. of baking Blenheims (love the alliteration!). Just as good as the first. Freezing didn't seem to hurt their texture, so I've put most of them (bagged in 1 lb. ziplocs) into the freezer. My family loves to eat them out of hand. And they were fantastic in Tassajara Warm Red Cabbage salad via "101 Cookbooks". Yum!!

  2. Without fail the best apricots

    Posted by Katie on Jun 11th 2023

    I would always get these at the Mountain View farmers market, and now that I moved out of state I can't get apricots like this anywhere. Luckily they ship! I buy the 10lb box and freeze what I don't immediately need. Regardless of whether they are fresh or frozen they always taste perfect. I will definitely be a life-long customer!

  3. Delicious

    We like to soak them overnight with our honey and stew them for breakfast in the morning. Superb!

  4. OMG! Just what I was looking for!

    Posted by Juliann Goldman on Jan 31st 2023

    I bought the Bulk Baking Blenheims - 10 lbs. Like Kim said, that's a lotta apricots. However, they aren't going to last long.
    I remember the apricots my mother used to give me as a treat, tart and chewy. These are them!
    I've been eating them out-of-hand and using them instead of raisins. And sharing with foodie friends!
    I had been searching for the perfect apricots to make a Georgian/Armenian soup from Naomi Dugid. I can't wait.
    I might even make homemade apricot filling for hamantaschen.
    The best!

  5. Absolute best dried apricots!

    Posted by Donna on Dec 29th 2022

    The service was fast; the product (10 lb bulk) was exactly as indicated. Apricots are so yummy, sweet, and soft. They freeze great for use all year long. This morning I put some in homemade scones. Fabulous! Love your apricots.

  6. Yummy dried apricots

    Posted by kim on Nov 21st 2022

    So good. Bought the 8lb bulk. Mumma-mia, that's allota apricots!
    Been snacking, froze some and made apricot square that were out of this world.
    Got enough to last awhile. When I need more I know where to go for California Apricots.

  7. Simply the Best dried apricots!

    Posted by Suzanne Connolly on Nov 5th 2022

    These are a huge treat: tart-sweet, soft and ready for snacking or baking pies/ tarts, putting in your morning oatmeal. The bulk packaging is reasonably priced given the very high quality of the product- such a step up from what is available at grocery or big box stores. AND this is a way to keep a small independent grower in business. But American ‘cots and from a family run business: A WIN!!
