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. Apricot heaven

    Posted by BgD on Sep 2nd 2023

    Title says it all!

  2. Always the best dried apricots

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 28th 2023

    Our family loves your Blenheim apricots. We have always thought they are the most flavorful and set the standard for the most delicious apricot. Thank you for continuing a tradition of fast, accurate service and wonderful fruit.

  3. Apricot memories

    Posted by Donna Wood Hussey on Aug 25th 2023

    These apricots are consistently excellent! I grew up in Los Altos California in the 1960's and 1970's, and just about everyone had Blenheim apricot trees! Being able to order these wonderful "cots", even though I'm now living in Tennessee, is a true joy! These apricots bring back some of my happiest memories of growing up in "The Valley of Hearts Delight"! Thank you for keeping those delicious memories alive!

  4. BEST Apricots EVER!!!

    Posted by Marion on Aug 24th 2023

    Patti and the USPS were prompt in delivering these delicious apricots so that they didn't spoil at all duing this horrible heat wave. I ordered them on Thursday, and Monday they were at my house. The package is attractive enough for gifting, and it reseals tightly. I got the Orchard Blend, which probably isn't the PRETTIEST, but you can't beat a snack of the chewy taste of this slightly sweet fruit along with a few whole almonds and cubes of Monterey Jack cheese.

  5. Best dried apricot you can buy!

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 7th 2023

    This is the second year in a row I have ordered from ApricotKing. I found them when I couldn’t find local dried apricots. Sublime!

  6. Let’s make ApricotKing the world’s premier apricot

    Posted by Kellye Skaines on Jul 10th 2023

    With all the push to make Mediterranean apricots the standard, superior taste
    was pushed aside. ApricotKing apricots have the finest flavor and the most moist
    taste that can be had! Everyone must try these! Then all will be able to compare
    and know the awesome difference to be had.

  7. Best dried apricots

    Posted by Jane on Jul 8th 2023

    I have purchased these before and introduced them to other members of my family. I am constantly asked where did you get these apricots so they can order them.
    They are the best treats.

  8. At least two decades of flavor

    Posted by Chuck Stonecipher on Jun 18th 2023

    My wife and I ate apricots every day for decades and for at least two decades they've been coming from ApricotKing. My wife was born and raised in San Jose and was near apricot orchards through her childhood. My mother-in-law would send us dried apricots annually and when she passed in 2000, we started ordering from the ApricotKing. After my wife passed in 2014, I continued the tradition. I've always been satisfied with the incredibly prompt service and delivery and the nicely packaged, tasty (and healthy) product.

  9. The best dry apricots on the market

    Posted by Alan Amerian on May 11th 2023

    I’ve been a big fan of the Apricot King’s drie apricots for years. They’re one of the very few growers remaining that grow Blenheim apricots. The big box store imported dry fruit has nowhere near the wonderful flavor these do.

  10. These apricots are great for snacking.

    Posted by TMC on May 11th 2023

    They are also wonderful in fruit bread.
