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.

Extra Fancy 14 oz gift bag Blenheim Apricots

Our Extra Fancy Blenheims are just  little bigger, a little fuller, a little more ripe, and a little more spectacular.

It takes a good year with a lot of rain water to make an abundance of extra fancy, large-sized apricots.

We hand-sorted the biggest and the best for our Extra Fancy Blenheim gifts.


An excellent presentation ...... these larger Blenheims are hand sorted and presented in a clear stand-up 14oz. gift bag.

Perfect for gifting or treating yourself to one of the tastiest treats at ApricotKing.

  4. Sooo good…

    Posted by MAF on Mar 13th 2023

    The Blenheim apricots that are dried and processed by APRICOTKING are simple the best. Always aromatic, firm, succulent, perfect texture and color, fabulous flavor - sweet with a hint of tartness. Very satisfying and the perfect snack - no pits, no mess. Thanks, Gonzales family!!

  5. Best in quality

    Posted by Eugenie on Feb 26th 2023

    Whichever product one might order from ApricotKing, be sure it’s the best in quality and customer service. ‘Nuff said.

  6. Kudos to ApricotKing for the wonderful plump, flavorful apricots

    Posted by Pam Spagnoli on Dec 26th 2022

    For the second year in a row I bought my husband a selection of apricots and chocolate-dipped apricots from ApricotKing as a Christmas gift. He loved them last year and was extremely pleased that I got him more this year. It was his favorite gift and one he will enjoy for several months. Stores in the east seem to carry only Turkish apricots that are so inferior to the ones we get from ApricotKing that they seem like a totally different fruit!

  7. Tart and flavorful

    Posted by Eugenie on Dec 17th 2022

    These CA Blenheim apricots are simply the best tasting I’ve found. Use them in oatmeal, cookies , breads, desserts, entrees, anything. Or eat them by themselves. It’s hard to eat just one.

  8. Best dried Apricots ever

    Posted by Marla Mueller on Dec 14th 2022

    I cannot find california apricots on the east coast anymore. Mediterranean apricots don't come close to the flavor of California apricots. I make a Christmas cookies with them, half shredded, sweetened coconut, half chopped california apricots, mixed with condensed milk to where they hold together, bake at 350 till edges are slightly brown, best macaroons ever. They are also gluten free. Thank you for you delicious fruits, I also enjoy eating them plain.

  9. Apricots - tart & sweet

    Posted by Dorothy on Dec 3rd 2022

    These Apricots are like the ones I remember from childhood (I’m over 50). Super sweet yet tart.

  10. Blenheims Satisfy

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 29th 2022

    These were my first Blenheim Apricots, but they will not be my last! I sent some to good friends for Christmas. They satisfy my sweet tooth and 3 of them make an excellent dessert for me. I will be trying them in oatmeal with raisins. Be sure to keep them in your refrigerator!
