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.

Unsulphured Blenheim Apricots Bulk 8 lbs

Bulk is out for the season......Back in August 2024.

Hoping our 2024-2025 crop will yield exceptionally rich and dark in unsulphured Blenheims.

These apricots are organically grown and dried in the sun with NO preservatives.

As they sun-dry, they become black in color....deep, dark, complex, and delicious.   

They are very chewy.

The higher the sugar content,  the darker they become. 

The connoisseurs are going to love these.   

They need to be refrigerated. They will hold in the freezer for up to one year.

Don't complain that they're too dry......they have to be dry or they will mold.

  1. Outstanding Treat

    Posted by Rick R on Feb 5th 2024

    Dried apricots are my number #1 favorite food. Dried unsulphured, Blenheim apricots are the best of the best.
    This was my third eight pound order from the ApricotKing. They are expensive but they are outstanding.

  2. Secret weapon going on 12 years

    Posted by maria on Feb 5th 2024

    I've been ordering these ugly little apricots for over 12 years. It started with an Almond Apricot pound cake recipe - but I've found that these work incredibly well in savory dishes that need just a touch of fruitiness. Crockpot curries, mexican recipes that use a lot of dried chilies benefit from the dark sweetness of these apricots. I make a persimmon bread with these apricots. I keep them in my freezer. They are ugly as all get out - but they disappear into dishes - leaving just a trace of something wonderful.

  3. Just What We've Been Looking For!

    This kind of apricot is hard to find, but they are our favorites. So excited to have found a good source here. Delicious and shipped right away. We'll be back!

    Best quality BLENHEIM APRICOTS available. Reminds me of days when I lived in Europe and went to the market.

  5. The Best

    Posted by Rick R on Jul 19th 2023

    This is my second purchase of unsulphured Blenheim apricots from the ApricotKing. They are great!

  6. The Best

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 1st 2023

    I love the organic unsulphured apricots! I have been buying them from Apricot King for a few years now and will continue to.

  7. Maybe this is why I am so healthy at 70!

    Posted by Robin Q on May 14th 2023

    I seem to buy about 16 pounds of these unsulphured apricots per year. Many mornings cut up In oatmeal or in trail mix with raw organic nuts. My husband eats some but I consume most . Many years part of my staple diet. Taste SO yum.

  8. Favorite Snack

    Posted by Bob K. on May 12th 2023

    I have been buying the unsulphured Blenheim apricots in the 8 pound box for quite a few years now and they have a much better flavor than Turkish apricots. They don't give me headaches like sulphured fruits do and they keep very well in my refrigerator.

  9. Outstanding Product

    Posted by Rick R on Apr 1st 2023

    My number One favorite food is dried apricots--not any dried apricots. It has to be unsulphured, Blenheim dried apricots. For many years, I was able to purchase them from Trader Joe's. For whatever reason, Trader Joe's no longer carries unsulphured, Blenheim dried apricots.

    Recently I purchased 8 lbs from the ApricotKing. I am delighted with them. They are pricey but delicious!

  10. Dried Apricots

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 28th 2022

    I love these apricots but this time they were too dry and tough.
