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. Incredibly Delicious!

    Posted by TinaT on Feb 17th 2024

    My husband and I love the tangy flavor of these wonderful California apricots. Besides eating them out of hand, I add whole apricots to peach pies, and chop them into pieces for oatmeal cookies and muffins. I was so glad that Patti from ApricotKing advised us to refrigerate these apricots so they always taste just as fresh and flavorful as when we first received them.

  2. Always the best!

    Posted by Marcia on Jan 13th 2024

    I don't know why anyone would want to buy any apricots other than California. Turkish are garbage compared to these.

  3. Best Ever

    Posted by Jill G on Nov 22nd 2023

    ApricotKing's apricots are amazing. Just sent some for a Thanksgiving present, but kept the second bag for myself!

  4. Best apricots

    Posted by JJWalls on Nov 9th 2023

    I love these apricots. I am low on potassium and so I eat these right out of package. They are soft and not overly sweet. I also buy your slab apricots and cook and make fried apricot pies and jam for toast.
    Your apricots are the best. I’ve been buying them for years.

    I made scones and jam. Excellent apricots.

  6. cream of the crop

    Posted by Erica Mueller on Sep 7th 2023

    Because the Blenheim apricot does not handle being shipped fresh, East coast dwellers like me don't get to enjoy them other than in dried form. This year's Blenheims are so tender that with just some pureeing with a bit of water or fruit juice, they become a wonderful jam, no cooking needed. The hard part is setting some aside to make the spread - it's difficult to control the urge to gobble them as is.

  7. Soooo good!

    Such a delicious product.. wonderful, concentrated flavor.. made with love..

  8. Apricot Twang!

    Posted by KJBaker on Aug 23rd 2023

    Your sulfured apricots have just the right taste to make them perfect. They are superior to any other type of dried apricot. I grew up in the valley of the San Jose area before the orchards were replaced with commercial and residential buildings and when, along the railroad tracks, you could delight in the smell of drying “cots”!

  9. Best apricots I have ever eaten

    Posted by Celine Evans on May 8th 2023

    I have loved apricots ever, since my grandmother fed them to me as a child. I was visiting friends in the bay area, and they presented me with a gift basket that included these apricots, and I was so amazed at the taste and texture. I had to ask where they got them, and it was from apricot king at a local farmers market, I ordered them as a gift but I will taste some. They are outstanding! Thanks to the growers, who give us this special gift from nature!.

  10. My favorite apricots

    Posted by Jeff M. on Apr 26th 2023

    I had been buying grocery store dried apricots for years. When our local grocery had a few week delay in getting restocked, I looked around the internet for alternatives. I found the Blenheim product offered by Patti and Gary and tried them out. Several orders later, I can't get enough and recommend going straight to the source now like I do. You won't regret it. These are the best dried apricots I've had in my life (and I've lived a few...5...decades). Bravo to the Gonzales family for their great products!
