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.

  1. The best dried apricots ever! Jam is also the best!

    Posted by Nancy on Oct 4th 2022

    These Blenheim apricots are the same kind we had in the foothills of Palo Alto where I grew up in the 1960's. Drying them each year and having a huge bag in the freezer to eat throughout the year was such a treat. Not to mention all the additional ways we ate the fresh ones (cobbler, pies, jam). Such a treat. After my sister discovered Apricot King, I am able to enjoy the incredible tastes from the past with their dried bulk apricots, as well as their amazing jam. I can't thank the Gonzales family enough for their work maintain and sell these precious apricots. We are so fortunate that they have chosen to provide us with these gems.

  2. Yum!

    I grew up drying apricots on the roof of our house from very old trees in our yard. ApricotKing's apricots are delicious too.
    I just made a batch of brownies and added chopped up dried apricots to the mix. Yum!

  3. I love apricots

    Excellent taste and texture.

  4. Best around

    Posted by Kelly Haserot on Jun 17th 2022

    We have ordered from Apricotking for about 15 years.
    We grew up drying our own cots with our grandparents in Los Altos hills and they are like home. ♥️

  5. Wonderful Apricots

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 14th 2022

    Love these dried apricots. They are so good. I froze mine into 1 lb packages and have a few each week. Soon I’ll make an old recipe for fruit turnovers. I can’t wait!

    the dried cots are so very good. can't get enough!

  7. Perfect as always

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 16th 2022

    I carry these on hikes, ski tours, and when traveling for work in my carry on luggage. I also grab a few passing through the kitchen when I just need a little snack. I never get tired of ApricotKing.

  8. Absolutely wonderful!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 25th 2021

    Turkish apricots will not do for my mother's fruit cake. Well, it's called a fruit cake but it's more like a loaf of fruit as there is no cake. Her old standby at the store went cheap but for the same price with Turkish apricots, this will not do! So off to the magic of the internet to find California Apricots for this year's fruit cakes for home, friends, and family. The Apricot King had not only what she wanted but what was not used of the 7 pounds will last a while in the freezer. She was ecstatic to be able to get these and at the quality. Plus a nice handwritten note from the owner.

  9. Absolutely delicious!!!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 5th 2021

    These apricots are the best money can buy! Purchased 21 pounds of them and couldn’t be happier with the taste and quality!!

  10. Scrumptious!

    Posted by Xavie A on Apr 23rd 2021

    So glad I stumbled across your website when I was searching for dried California apricots! These are firm, chewy and full of flavor!
