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)


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. Excellent Dried Apricots!

    Posted by Gene on Nov 28th 2022

    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!

  2. 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.

  3. Deserves everyone of those 5 stars

    Posted by Janet Checkman on May 1st 2022

    Wouldn't order from anyone else. This is the Ferrari of dried apricots!

  4. 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.

  10. Happy Tastebuds

    Posted by Y Low on Jan 17th 2022

    After ordering 16 oz packages two separate times, I decided it was time to get wise and order the 2.5 pound package. Unfortunately, not every single slippit was tender and sweet as in the smaller packages so a bit disappointed, but not enough to stop eating them or stop ordering them.
