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

Ooohhh la la.  

Our 2022 crop is 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 dry......but adding some water will soften them right on up. 

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.

This year we used our slabs to make our unsulphured, so they are extra delicate and thin. A true labor of love.

  4. The best tasting apricots!

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 4th 2020

    These are simply the best tasting apricots in the world, - they have a tangy flavor with just the right amount of sweetness, unlike Turkish apricots which are bland and too sweet!

  5. Favorite snack

    Posted by Bob K on Mar 21st 2020

    I've ordered the 8 pound box of un-sulphured apricots many times and they are Great. They are not as beautiful as the bright orange sulphured apricots but the sulphured fruits give me a headache.

  6. These are some of the best dried apricots I've ever had!

    Posted by Cor Garcia-Held on Dec 28th 2019

    Dried apricots are one of my favorite treats. I like them a tiny bit soft, sweet, and dry enough to have some tartness and these meet all my markers! Really delicious, thank you!

  7. Wonderful and full of vitamins and nutrients

    Posted by Robin Q on Sep 27th 2019

    I have at least one or two of these per day and not only taste great but think of it like taking s vitamin. Blenheim apricots might be my favorite fruit. I do not like to ingest the sulphur or other preservatives usually used to keep the bright color of dried apricots. I don’t care if they are not beautiful, they sure taste great!

  8. excellent organic apricots

    Posted by Katerina on Oct 5th 2018

    I am so happy that I found this product after years of using Turkish apricots, which are usually too moist and not cut. These one are exactly as from my grandma, cut and dried in the sun. Will buy them again

  9. Love These

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 9th 2018

    Great taste and texture. Can't stop eating them. Also, they are healthy.

  10. Unique Flavor

    Posted by Laura S. on Jul 31st 2018

    Such a unique flavor (not as tart as the regular ones). Can't stop eating them! In the past, I have found they do get a bit too dry and hard to chew. But I am thinking if I mix the slabs in with them, that will help keep them moist.
