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.

SlipPits 2020 16 oz

- Last few available until end of summer 2021

Not every apricot can grow up to be a SLIPPIT.  

You've got to be large, plump, flawless, and ripe.

We save the best Blenheims of the day for slippits............the Cadillac of our Line.

These luscious slippits are dried whole in the sun. After 3-4 days, the pit is gently slipped out.

That little bit of extra roasted-in-pit time, gives the slippies an extra pizzaz and  unique flavor.

  1. Slip Pits Are Out-of-This-World Delicious!!

    Posted by Mirador Chocolates, Boston, MA on Jan 30th 2021

    The Slip Pits are outstanding. Huge, jammy, tart, flavorful, just incredible. It's as if they are only half dried, so incredibly moist.

    There is really no toughness to these at all, which I personally love and prefer. They're also huge, a two-bite treat! Worth every penny.

  2. superb

    Posted by John cea on Jan 29th 2021

    best dried apricots I ever have eaten , I keep coming back for more.

  3. So indulgent

    Posted by JK on Jan 19th 2021

    I have never had apricots like these. They are truly an indulgence!! Soft, moist and velvety and full of flavor. I do actually prefer the chewier/firmer apricots as a personal preference for long term snacking but these are definitely a must try at least once.

  4. Prefer the round container

    Posted by Michael George on Jan 18th 2021

    These excellent apricots should be packed in the nice plastic round container not thrown in a bag

  5. Slip Pits

    Posted by Gypsy Pulliam on Jan 1st 2021

    These are the best apricots I have ever eaten. Love them and enjoy gifting them to friends.

  6. The best dried apricots

    Posted by Art in LA on Dec 22nd 2020

    The taste is amazing. The texture is velvety, not rubbery like Turkish apricots.

    The standard by which all other dried apricots must be judged. Truly fantastic! This is a wonderful little luxury to spoil a special person ... or to spoil yourself!

  8. Great Flavor

  9. The Best!

    Posted by Melanie on Dec 6th 2020

    These slip-pits are simply the finest dried apricots I have ever eaten, and that’s sayin’ something!
    I’m a native th the SF Bay Area and have spent my life loving dried apricots of every kind. Apricot King’s Slip Pits surpass all. They’re large, moist, sweet-tart, thick and absolutely scrumptious! You’re gonna’ love ‘em!!

  10. The very finest!
