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.

    They arrived in great packaging, and are as delicious as I remember them! I first purchased them at a farmer's market when on a trip to California last year! So yummy!

    This is the best dried apricot out there. No contest. My kids moved out of state and beg me to ship them. (So, I do!)

    Posted by Scott Dias on Oct 12th 2023

    We use to have 80 acers of Apricots in Fremont, the Dias ranch. Glad we found the Apricot King. Sure did miss the sulfur smoked Cots. Will be a faithful buyer from now on. Spent half of my life picking and running the dryer.
    Thanks Scott Dias.

  8. Best for Snaking or Baking!

    Posted by Linda Pilon on Oct 11th 2023

    These dried apricots are wonderful! I bought them originally for baking, but we loved just popping one or two into our mouths and enjoying the wonderful flavor. They have become a staple at our home.

  9. A perfect snack!

    Posted by janie balesteri on Oct 11th 2023

    About 11 years ago I moved from Monterey to Maui. I really missed the great summer fruits I’d grown up with. But being able to get these fantastic blenheim apricot products has made my life about as perfect as it can get!

  10. Delicious

    Posted by Lee on Oct 6th 2023

    We love your Simply Slabs. They are sweet, chewy, and always full of that delicious apricot flavor.
