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 Large

Last week for these slippies......more in August 2021

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.


The 2021 crop is here! Fresh off the trays, available for purchase August 5.

  1. Awesome, ripe, flavorful

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 13th 2021

    Get these and enjoy anytime and anywhere…they are so flavorful and so natural - no junk, no sugar, just good apricots picked at their best and then dried. More please.

  2. The Best

    Posted by Howard on May 15th 2021

    Absolutely the best Apricots ever!!! Sweet and tart!!

  3. Delicious!

    Posted by Unknown on May 1st 2021

    The slip pit apricots are so tasty! Big, soft, flavorsome! They'll be my go to apricot order from now on (provided they aren't sold out) ...

  4. Wonderful!

    Posted by Peggy Langgle on Apr 23rd 2021

    I shared some slippies with a friend. She couldn’t believe hire big and soft they were. So glad you found more boxes this year!

  5. Phenomenal!

    Posted by Dave K on Apr 18th 2021

    ApricotKing Slippits are like no other dried apricot in my experience, and are my favorite amongst really tough competition: the rest of the AppricotKing lineup! They are so amazingly good! They go fast, though, so buy more than you think you need :-)

  6. Outrageous!!!

    Posted by BRS on Apr 18th 2021

    Once you try these, you'll never go back! Full of flavor, sweet with a hint of tanginess, the greatest!

  7. Unbelievably delicious

    Posted by Leslie Wustrack on Apr 12th 2021

    These are scrumptious. Fit for a Queen.

  8. Should have ordered more

    Posted by Courtney on Mar 18th 2021

    My only regret is not buying more. Loved the personal note of appreciation!

  9. Incredible

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 8th 2021

    The Absolute Best. Sad that they're sold out for months but happy I got to try them! Nature's candy and totally addictive.

  10. 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.
