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.

    Puddles are the ultimate treat. The perfect dried apricot, with just enough caramel, dipped in amazing chocolate.
    it is impossible to just have one. Love, Love, Love, them.

  4. Best Gift on Earth

    My veterinarian loves me....could it be the Puddles? I'm a sweetheart but she sure loved the Puddles.

  5. Save me!

    Posted by Jacqueline on Apr 10th 2021

    I learned to allow the chocolate to soften in my mouth before beginning to chew. Then, slowly, slowly so all the flavors mixed together, moved it around in my mouth while chewing gently. One a day was delicious. Two was such a treat. Three was almost too much. Hard to identify the caramel - it blended in so well. Until bitten in half to check, wasn't sure it was there. Excellent quality chocolate!

  6. Amazing Puddles

    Posted by Eleanor on Apr 10th 2021

    My husband and I, our two children and spouses and 5 grandchildren are all hooked on puddles. Not sure how we can live without them, off season. The hint of caramel when you bite into what appears to be a dark chocolate-covered apricot is a special surprise. Yummmmm!

  7. I like them

    These are so good. I would say better than Sees candy.

  10. Wonderful Treat!

    Posted by VM from Utah on Mar 9th 2021

    Puddles are the only chocolate treats I can't get enough of. They are a surprise delight when you take your first little bite. The apricot is tender and tasty. The caramel is the surprise that make Puddles so special and delicious. When dipped in the luscious dark chocolate, the three ingredients add up to a heavenly treat!
