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 2023


"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.

  1. Slabs are always our first choice

    Posted by Bob R on Feb 22nd 2024

    These are the best treat and we use them as special gifts for friends.

  2. Sweet Slabs

    Posted by K Perry on Feb 19th 2024

    My husband comes from a long line of Apricot Rancher in the San Jose area. He absolutely love the slabs we get from Patti and Gary. Next best thing to the ones he had growing up!

  3. The BEST!

    Posted by A. Rhine on Feb 19th 2024

    Slab apricots are the sweetest, BEST tasting apricots! I order slabs several times a year.

  4. Apricot perfection

    Posted by Bob Maclean on Feb 18th 2024

    My grandmother (Croatian) used to help grow, cut and dry Blenheims in Mountain View generations ago, so I grew up eating fresh Blenheims, along with dried apricots and fresh apricot jam. These "slab" apricots bring back all those memories--they have a wonderful aroma, are sweet, moist and so delicious. Thank you, thank you, thank you for still growing these apricots so others can enjoy them--you are really doing a rare, special work in the world of farming, helping to keep this variety alive.

  5. Terrifically Satisfying Taste!

    Posted by E. Adams on Feb 8th 2024

    A flavorful sweet and tangy treat! They are perfect at satisfying my afternoon cravings for junk foods. These apricots and a few nuts and I am reenergized❣️

  6. We Want All the Slabs

    Posted by Arthur on Feb 6th 2024

    I hesitate to rave about these slabs because I don't want them to run out. They are soft and chewy and sweet and tart like only real apricots can be. The best I've ever eaten and we just keep ordering more.

  7. Slabs--slabs--slabs.

    Posted by M.Ward on Jan 30th 2024

    I hate to tell everyone that slabs are still the best because by doing so-- it gets harder to buy them due to shortages and of course the price goes up. So take my advice and DO NOT buy slabs--try other versions of the dried apricots--you'll be happy.

  8. Blenheim Apricots

    Posted by Yvonne on Jan 30th 2024

    Melt-in-mouth sweetness of Apricot Slabs is addictive! My favorite snack!

  9. Unbelievably Fabulous!

    Posted by Cathy Buehler on Jan 28th 2024

    The slabbies have the maximum sweetness of all but still have the essential tartness to make the flavor perfectly balanced. I'll be reordering soon....

  10. Slabs are a favorite treat

    Posted by Bob R on Jan 20th 2024

    We have been getting these great dried cots for years.
    They are always well appreciated treats by those we give these to.
