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 16 oz Extra Large


Not every apricot can grow up to be a SLIPPIT.  

You've got to 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.

16 oz bags  These are show-piece - large.

  1. 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!!

  4. Excellent dried apricots!

    Posted by Peggy Langgle on Oct 2nd 2020

    I have eaten dried apricots since I was a small girl. I so enjoy them! My brother gifted me with a bag of slip pits from Apricot King. They were moist and flavorful! I am not sure I can ever go back to regular dried apricots!

  5. As good as they promised to be

    Simply AMAZING.

  8. Can't Compare

    Posted by Ann Geiger on Sep 15th 2020

    God smiles on the Gonzales family and the products they create in Hollister. These Slip Pit apricots are so big and so delicious! I have had slip pits from other farms and these by far are the best! Harvested at the peak of ripeness and dried perfectly to give you a piece of fruit that is the ultimate treat. So much better for you than all the sugary snacks in stores.

  9. Slip Pit Apricots

    Posted by Janet on Jun 29th 2020

    I hate to say, these are the most amazing apricots I have ever had because I want some to be left for me to buy. I purchase about 10 pound of this amazing fruit to last me over the winter here in New Jersey. On occasion I start running low and always hope there is a supply left at the farm for me to buy. I have found no other place with this high quality of fruit. I have purchased from Apricotking for over 5 years,.

  10. Slip Pits from 2019 still rock!

    Posted by Jim on Jun 26th 2020

    We have been buying these delicious for several years and the quality has always been outstanding. The most recent packages from June 2020 containing 2019 crop were no exception. They were big and juicy and the test is excellent. We are anxious to receive the 2020 crop and from Patty has posted the slip pits will be ready soon.
