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.

  1. Best apricot slabs I tasted

    Posted by Trina on Sep 11th 2021

    Great texture. Sweet and soft like.
    You will love them

  2. Mmmm...tasty!

    The apricot slabs are excellent! Remind me of 'cots we dried in our backyard when we were kids. No comparison with any dried apricots in the grocery store, even if they say from California. Nice to be able to order online.

  3. Exceeds expectations, again.

    I'm already thinking about ordering more. So much better than the Turkish apricots available in local grocery stores. I highly recommend these apricots.

  5. Just might be my fav!

    Posted by Sandra on Aug 29th 2021

    Better than candy and surely doesn't last as long around me! Love these delicious bits of tart, sweet and chewy goodies, can't get enough!

  6. Delicious!

    These slabs are so good I could eat the entire bag in one sitting. Highly recommended.

  7. No finer 'cots

    Posted by Dave on Aug 23rd 2021

    These are The BEST. There is no finer dried apricot in the world than a AK Slab. Our family buys them 10 pounds at a time, every few months while they last. Truly, they are food for the body and the soul.

    My grandparents moved to the Bay Area when it was still mostly Blenheim orchards, before Silicon was appended to Valley and the trees got displaced by nerds (like me). But the family ties to California apricots runs deep in my blood. After years of trying different dried cots I found Apricot King Slabs. Nothing else compares.

  8. finally dried apricots with some flavor

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 20th 2021

    I used to live in San Jose so I have missed having a good dried apricot until I got my order from you guys. As a teen I used to cut cots in the Evergreen area. I shared with my kids and grandkids, and they enjoyed them too. Thanks

  9. Bursting with sweet flavor

    Posted by Janet on Aug 18th 2021

    Slab apricots are my favorite. Apricot King has the best! I used to buy them a local Farmer's market in San Jose. I now order online as I live in Southern CA. Th

  10. The Best!

    Posted by Jan on Aug 16th 2021

    Apricot King is the best! Their apricots are a bit of paradise. Order up, you'll be happy you did : )
