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 15 oz)
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......jut a few cases left.

Slip-pit Blenheims are the best.
Posted by John Butler on Feb 19th 2023
I've ordered form ApricotKing a few times over the past half-dozen years. Order is filled quickly and arrives VERY fast. And ALL the items I've ordered over time have been outstanding.
Most recently I've ordered some of their SlipPit Blenheim apricots. Wow! You haven't ever had a dried apricot until you've had a whole/slippit Apricot. Sweet - but with a terrific tart finish (I kid you not - the language of wine comes handy for these humble dried fruits). Great chew - but soft. Conventional dried apricots aren't even in the same general area when it comes to these Kings of the orchard. They're a splurge, but super worth it!

If you enjoy dried apricots then give yourself a treat and purchase the Apricotking "slippits" and I'll bet you will be ordering more.
I think they deserve 10 stars!
The best apricots
Posted by ML on Jan 22nd 2023
There are no apricots like these anywhere in the world. The unusual processing produces an excellent quality of dried apricots.
Excellent Dried Apricots!

I used to order from sunsweet since my family was at one point in business with them when we had an orchard that produced fruits and nuts that needed to be dried/packaged for sale. Since that ended the best place I've found for dried apricots is Apricot King. Their fruit is top notch and tastes how I think it should. I also enjoy their dried pears!
THE Present I buy for only myself
Posted by Elizabeth on Oct 24th 2022
To say that I love dried apricots is an understatement. Many years ago we got Apricot King Slip Pits as a gift. I was hooked. I buy them every year. I buy the regular ones for my family (passing on the addiction) but I buy the Slip PIts for myself for Christmas every year.
Deserves everyone of those 5 stars

Wouldn't order from anyone else. This is the Ferrari of dried apricots!
Worth the Hype
Posted by Stew on Apr 11th 2022
Never tried these before & saw the hype for them on the Website. Definitely a step up from the regular dried apricot & in my opinion, well worth the hype & premium price. I'll be back for more.

I read about Blenheim apricots in an article (Eat, Drink, Savor: ApricotKing Orchard helps keep the Blenheim apricot alive)
So I was excited to try them. They were wonderful! Thank you for growing these.
