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.

SlipPits 2022 Cadillac Apricots ( 8 lbs bulk)

  • New 2022 Crop


  • The Cadillac of our Line.


     Not every Blenheim can grow up to be a SLIPPIT.

     Very few Blenheims grow this large and flawless.

     Out of the 200 tons of fresh Blenheims harvested in 2022, 

     our ladies select the prettiest & the ripest to be slippits.

  •  The entire apricot is  dried in the sun. 
  •  This gives slippies a deeper flavor ..... like in the old days when people canned and put a pit in the jar for flavor.

       That's a real thing, the pit itself has a flavor.

  • The pits are slipped out (by hand -each and-every-single-one), washed, and voila...

     8 lbs bulk

  1. Had to hide them, they're THAT good!

    Posted by Sarah S. on Dec 3rd 2022

    Delicious. Great to put out with nuts for a special occasion. Wow.

  2. Amazing!

    This is our 3rd order of bulk slippits. They’re deliciously tart and sweet, each and every one.

  3. Soft and sweet.

    Posted by Mickeylou5 on Sep 3rd 2022

    These were delicious! Very soft and sweet. I usually would order the unsulfured ones but they were not available for the bulk sale. So I decided to give these a try. I would buy again for sure.

  4. The best at any price

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 30th 2022

    There are apricots and then there are apricots. These are the best I have ever had. They are in a different league.

  5. King of the King’s cots!

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 27th 2022

    I’ve been eating ApricotKing cots since I first discovered them back early 2000’s…only brand I would ever buy since, but now I’ve become hooked to just slip pits…that’s why I appreciate the bulk buy offers with their discounts. I find that the Apricot Kings slip pits are the absolute “King” over all other brands on the market!

  6. Our second box!

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 19th 2022

    These are the best apricots out there! Tender, sweet, flavorful!

  7. Had a problem with my order.

    Posted by Glenn Combs on Mar 7th 2022

    Patti fixed the problem and then gave me a huge discount on my next order. I wouldn't buy this stuff anywhere else. If you like slabs, you'll love slippits.

  8. The best apricots out there!

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 18th 2022

    Sweet, tender, delicious and beautiful! Our whole family loves these apricots. We bought 2 pounds of these at the farmers market and finished them in a week so we knew that a 7lb box would be perfect.

  9. Surprise Treat

    Posted by Mitchell Held on Feb 12th 2022

    Unexpected California Fancy

  10. We love these Cots.

    Look forward to your annual harvest and the great customer service at the Apricot King. These Blenheim apricots are always worth the wait.
