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 (Gourmet 14 oz)

2023 Crop 

Not every apricot can grow up to be a SLIPPIT.  

You must  be extra-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.

 These are show-piece - large.


We run short of these every year......

  1. Delicious!

    Posted by on May 30th 2024

    I've ordered these many times. Just ordered some more for friends as a gift. Delicious! Dear Apricot Folks, I never properly thanked you for the extra goodies that you threw in with my last order. They were delicious!

  2. Fantastic Fruit with consistently perfect quality and flavor

    Posted by Ben H on Mar 14th 2024

    I order these every year and usually I'll be buying more each time. They are fantastic! You will not be disappointed.

  3. The Best!

    Posted by mike george on Feb 18th 2024

    People rave over Turkish apricots. Slip Pits are FAR better!

  4. The best apricots in the country!

    Slip pits from ApricotKing are just fabulous. They are always moist and delicious. I have ordered countless times over the years and have never had a problem. I always get a nice "thank you" enclosed in each shipment.

  5. Outstanding fruit.

    Some of the best smoked fruit we have purchased. From one fruit grower to another. nice job!

  6. The Absolute Best

    Posted by Dan Joseph on Jan 22nd 2024

    I have been buying dried apricots for over 20 years and I have never been disappointed by any of the products that ApricotKing sells. I especially love the slip pits. They have excellent flavor. Also, they use much less sulpher dioxide. It does require the apricots to be kept in the refrigerator but that is a small price to pay for such great flavor.

  7. A great snack!!

    Delicious way to enjoy a whole dried apricot! Sumptuous!!!

  8. Impressive flavor

    Posted by Jay on Oct 21st 2023

    Having loved apricots since childhood, “slippits” seemed to have… well slipped through the cracks in my tastebuds, slightly more than a single bite but ooh that wonderful apricot flavor shines through!

  9. So good!

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 1st 2023

    Fresh and yummy!

  10. WOW!!

    Posted by Renee on Sep 23rd 2023

    Amazing! Incredible flavor and texture. There's nothing else like these. Give them a try. You'll be glad you did!
