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.

    This collection of dried fruit is outstanding. I reside in a state that produces a lot of top-flight dried fruit but this collection tops them all. Wow.

    I have ordered the San Benito Sampler, as well as many other products from ApricotKing, and they are simply the best! Not like dried out "fruit leather", at all, but wonderful, soft, and full of flavor. The Sampler has received rave reviews from everyone I sent it to, the slip-pit apricots are heavenly, and the snack packs of mixed fruit pieces and nuts are great to have around for everyday eating.

    I recently purchased a Benito Sampler. This was a first time purchase from The Apricot King. Someone had recommended I try their products. I'm so glad I did!! The apricots are so moist, soft and delicious! As are the other fruits in the sampler. I would and will recommend The Apricot King!!
