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.

  1. 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!

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

  5. 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!

  6. Delicious combination of flavors!

    Posted by B. Blair on Mar 5th 2021

    The apricots are incredible--sweet and tender. They are dipped in wonderful dark chocolate. The sweet surprise is the caramel "puddle" in the middle. My only wish is to put more caramel in them. That's the only way to get the rest of the way to perfection! Love these!

  7. SCORED!!!

    They were given as a gift, and I was told they were DIVINE! I was thanked up and down!

  8. The Best!

    Favorite candy ever. Have not had them in several years and was very excited to get as a Christmas gift. Awesome..

  9. Crazy good!!!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 20th 2020

    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.

  10. Scrumptious

    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.
