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.

Simply Slabs

2022 Crop 

"Which apricots are the sweetest?"

The answer to the question:




Slabs have the highest sugar content of all the apricots because they're longer on the tree...picked when they're soft and overripe.

Ours are machine cut, paper-thin, and delicate...even though they're the most labor intensive to produce.

These cots are separated from the rest of the pack by their unique color and flat-ness.

Blenheim slabs are the ultimate #1 choice of apricot aficionados everywhere!


Low in sulphur, so eat them, or refrigerate.


 14 oz.

    Apricots like yours are to be savored. I'd use 'treasured' but that might imply that we store them for any length of time.

  4. Delicious apricots!!!

    I have been buying ApricotKing dried fruits for years. My fave are the slabs ... absolutely delish! The only dried fruit vendor that uses less sulphur in their drying procedure ... thus persevering the best flavored dried cots, as well as their other dried fruits ... moist and sweet. The leather cots are a little more dry and my kids love these treats for hikes and backpack trips ... a great pick-me-upper!

  7. Local Consumer . These are the very best . Sold at high end farmers markets in central California.

    I have been doing commercial refrigeration for 40 years . I see fruit in all stages at all ranches . I like anyone else can buy anywhere I choose . I buy slabs from Gary and Patty . Top quality , taste and consistency. I send these slabs as gifts to friends in different states . I like all the different grades though . Sometimes the orchard blend is my tart flavor of the day . Chocolate Dipped for special occasions . Leathers in my pocket if I’m working in the winter . Nothing else will do after you try these .

  8. The best apricots
