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



Our 2022 unsulphured Blenheim apricots are organically grown and dried naturally in the sun. 

They are cut in half and dried for 8-10 days, then washed, and dried again.

This year's unsulphured are the best we've ever done....magnificently rich in color and flavor. 

 They can be frozen or refrigerated for years.

They are very dry......but adding some water and soften them right on up.

The Blacker they are.....the sweeter they are.

The 2022 unsulphured crop has been a tremendous labor-intensive chore.

We used only our slabbiest sweetest apricots.........spectacular color and taste.

  1. You are right, the Best Apricots Ever!

    Posted by STEVEN THOMPSON on Sep 29th 2022

    These unsulfured Blenheim Apricots are the best ever, even better than last year. I hope you continue making these available.

  2. You are right, these apricots are the best ever!

    Posted by STEVEN THOMPSON on Aug 28th 2022

    I thought last year's unsulfered apricots were really good, but tough. This year is even better! The apricots are a little softer and are even sweeter and larger, and likely even more nutritious than ever. I am thoroughly enjoying these. I slowly chew them as I do work online. Thanks for making them available.

  3. I love Blenheim apricots.

    Posted by Robin Q on Aug 21st 2022

    These have been one of my my staples for much of my life. I have bought in bulk from ApricotKing a few times per year for many, many years and attribute this in part to my very healthy 69 year old self. Flavor is amazing. Some may be put off by not the bright color brought on by Sulphur but I don’t do sulphur in my food.

  4. These are the best

    I love these. I buy them every year.

  5. My favorite apricots in the whole world

    Posted by Cor Garcia-Held on May 8th 2022

    I love these apricots so much. I buy several pounds in December and snack on them till Spring. They're so full of flavor and the soft juicy texture is perfection. I will be back again and again.

  6. Blenheim is the best!

    Posted by Unknown on May 7th 2022

    Rich flavored, chewy snack! Just like I made myself. Flavor is more intense than the sulfured apricots.

  7. Most flavorful

    Posted by Sandra on Apr 17th 2022

    ApricotKing's unsulphured dried apricots provide lots of chewy flavor. Love them right from the bag and do keep them refrigerated. They are great for cooking and can be somewhat 'reconstituted' by a soak in water if you prefer. Consistently great taste!

  8. Excellent

  9. These are precious heirlooms

    Posted by Nancy on Feb 21st 2022

    I always used to stock up on the Blenheim's when I went to Trader Joes. A few months ago, I was dismayed that they were no longer carrying these gems. After searching, I located them at Apricot King. The Gonzales family has very high standards in their merchandise as well as service. They actually care what a customer thinks of their product. That is why I am a repeat customer. As long as they grow them, I will buy them! Support this small business!

  10. There's nothing better than unsulfured apricots!

    Posted by Suzanne on Feb 19th 2022

    I can sit there and eat the whole bag! No chemical after-taste because there are no chemicals!
