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.

    As my son says, the most delicious candy ever tasted! You really can't get any better than these puddles! Honestly, they are completely out right now, so what does that say? If I were selfish, I wouldn't tell you how great they are, so there would be more for us! Even with the caramel and chocolate enrobement, the sweet/tart unique flavor of the deliciously gooey dried Blenheim apricot shines through. It complements the chocolate caramel with a flavor profile that is truly out of this world.

    Outrageously delicious combination of creamy chocolate, delectable caramel and succulent Apricot King cots! My son said it's his favorite candy of all time. Genius combo.

    Posted by Becky Knoblich on Sep 30th 2020

    I opened up my box of Apricots, and immediately ate one of the puddles, they blow my mind they are sooo good!! It's hard to not eat five or six of them!! The jumbo cots are so soft and delicious! I am going to put them on my calendar to order every two months!! The best, tastiest, delicious Apricots in the world!!

    The puddles are delicious. Even better, my wife doesn't want them, so I get them all to myself. The key ingredient is that the dried apricot isn't hard and overly chewy as many dried apricots are. These are thick, juicy, and tender. The dark chocolate is a good, tasty brand of chocolate. The caramel is arguably the weakest part -- everything else is so good you just suck out the caramel quickly. It'd be interesting if they made the candies with more caramel in them to balance out the components. (In other words, you have a huge apricot with lots of chocolate covering, and a dab of caramel. MORE CARAMEL, LADIES AND GENTS, PLEASE.
