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.

Enjoy!

Patti and Gary Gonzales, Hollister, CA

SlipPits Whole Apricots ( 7 lbs boxed bulk)

 

  • 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 2021, 

     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...

  1. The Best Dried Apricots & Apricot Jam Ever

    Posted by Gloria on Oct 1st 2020

    It so wonderful when you look forward to receiving great dried apricots and upon their arrival you are not disappointed! These are the most succulent dried apricots ever! The low sugar jam I have had to hide since it has become a favorite in this house!

  2. 2020 Slip Pits

    Posted by Jim on Sep 21st 2020

    Wonderful. big lush, and tasty!

  3. Perennial favorites!

    Posted by Erica Mueller on Sep 19th 2020

    The slip-pit Blenheims are SO wonderful! My understanding is that this variety doesn't travel well, so I can't get fresh ones in New England. My afternoon treat is two slip-pits, a shortbread cookie, and a mug of Constant Comment tea. Placing my annual bulk order feels like an extravagance, but since the fresh apricots available here, which are always disappointing, are $3/#, when you consider the water weight differential, these are reasonably priced. They are so tender and moist that you could ALMOST spread one on a bagel or toast. Drying with the pit included adds an amaretto-like finish to the apricots. I've raved about them on foodie websites Chowhound and Hungry Onion, and am happy to have made some ApricotKing converts among readers.

  4. Best Cots around !

    Posted by Wayne Wilson on Sep 18th 2020

    These are as good as they get . I grew up in the Santa Clara valley back in the 50' and 60's and you could get these local but not any more. Excellent service also.

  5. Wonderful Apricots!

    Posted by Deb on Mar 16th 2020

    These apricots are amazing! They are soft, chewy, flavorful, grown in USA! I purchase lots of these apricots from Apricot King every year. There just are no others like them!! So grateful for their family orchards!!!!

  6. Best in the world

    Posted by Jim on Mar 15th 2020

    The slip pit apricots cannot be more delicious! They arrive fresh and ready to eat and enjoy. Thank you for growing these wonderful apricots!

  7. Wonderful product! Order the best.

    Posted by William on Feb 19th 2020

    These by far the best apricot available. possibly the best in the world as we have experience with various Central Asia and Caucasian varieties which are hard to come by with traveling as we do. The Apricot King service is five star and special requests are handled with ease to customers like us. Thank you for providing some delicious treats to supplement our directs so pleasurably.

  9. Superb!

    Posted by erica mueller on Oct 30th 2019

    These excellent apricots are so moist that they can ALMOST be spread like jam. Unlike the Turkish apricots available in supermarkets, the sweetness of these dried Blenheims has a slightly astringent finish, which is addictively delicious.

  10. Slip pits are wonderful!

    Posted by Jim Glass, Maryland on Oct 19th 2019

    Just received another batch of beautiful and delicious slip pits. Treat yourself to these wonderful apricot delight. Thanks Patti
