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 2023 Cadillac Apricots Bulk 10 lbs


 The Cadillac of our 2023-2024 Line.

 Not every Blenheim can grow up to be a SLIPPIT.

 Very few Blenheims grow this large & flawless.

 ApricotKing selects the fullest & ripest cot 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, re-dried, & there you have it............... 10 lbs bulk

  1. Slippits are the best!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 22nd 2023

    We ordered the 10 pound bag and were pleased with the quality - plump and tasty. We have vacuum sealed them in smaller amounts to enjoy for weeks and weeks.

  2. Good, but not as sweet as Orchard Blend

    Posted by Debra on Dec 11th 2023

    At almost twice the price of 10 lbs of Orchard Blend, I thought these would be amazing. I am a bit disappointed. They are good, but I much prefer the Orchard Blend for it's sweetness along with the better price.

  3. My Favorite!

    Posted by Jen on Oct 29th 2023

    I love these apricots! They are big, chewy and so flavorful. I buy the 8lb bags and they really keep well in the refrigerator.

  4. Best apricots in the world.

    Posted by Janet on Oct 28th 2023

    I have been purchasing these apricot for years. They are the best I have ever had.

  5. The World'sB est

    Posted by Dave Baird on Oct 25th 2023

    The slip-pit Blenheims really are the world's best.
    I've been a fruit nut (connoisseur) since I was a kid and have tried every type of apricot I could find.
    These are the real deal!

  6. Double your pleasure...

    Posted by Erica Mueller on Oct 21st 2023

    I have ordered the slip-pit Blenheims for many years. Of course, weather conditions effect the annual crop. This year they are not the moistest I have ever enjoyed, but they are quite large - easily twice the size of supermarket dried apricots.

  7. 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.

  8. Amazing!

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 2nd 2022

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
