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


 Slabs are here..... New Crop




The answer to the question "Which apricots are the sweetest?"

SLABS...ALWAYS SLABS....if you can find them.


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. New Crop 2021


 14 oz.

    I live in Texas but my mother was born & raised in California. These slabs are by far the best I’ve tasted! No sulfur aftertaste!

  4. King of apriciots

    Posted by Karen L Maihofer on Oct 4th 2021

    If you are looking for the sweetest, moistest and most flavorful apricot, look no further. Slab apricots are the best.
    I am so lucky to have found Apricot King. I have never tasted any other apricot anywhere as good as these. Here in my home state of WI, we are unable to even buy California apricots anymore. All we can get is Turkish apricots. It seems they are getting harder and harder to find. I am a customer for life. Take good care of those Blenheim apricot trees!

  5. Slabs are superb!!

    Posted by Cynthia on Sep 29th 2021

    These are the softest, most flavorful "dried" apricots I've ever had!! Slabs are simply the BEST!!

  6. Low sugar apricot jam

    Posted by Cynthia on Sep 29th 2021

    I love this jam. There is just at bit of tartness to it. Perfect for use in glazes for chicken or pork. Delicious in oatmeal and on toast or English Muffins. Will definitely buy again!

  7. The Best

    Posted by Jere in Oregon on Sep 28th 2021

    As an "old timer," I absolutely love these apricots.

  8. just thank you---- for making it possible to find such rare quality!

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 28th 2021

    an extravagant treat.. shipped 'cross-country-- but I always remind myself: it's cheaper than a doctor's visit! (and better than any candy)

    you can't go wrong with ANY of Patti & Gary's apricots.. but I always go for the Simply Slabs and the Leathers


  9. Just the best!

    Posted by Marilyn on Sep 27th 2021

    I cut cots when I was a teenager and I remember taking a slab off the drying tray. The slabs take me back and they taste just as wonderful as I remember.

  10. Aces for eating

    Posted by Mike in Tucson on Sep 23rd 2021

    The slab are absolutely the best eating apricots I have ever purchased commercially. The light sulfur preservative doesn’t come through until you’ve eaten more at one sitting than is appropriate. I know, I have. I still went back for more.
