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. 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!

  2. Excellent

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. Fantastic

    Posted by Michele on Feb 12th 2022

    These are my new favorites!

  6. Dandy Candy

    Posted by Tommy on Feb 5th 2022

    These apricots are like candy from heaven. When you first pop one in your mouth you go, huh? Where's the flavor? After about 4 seconds the flavor builds until you can not stand it...and you start to chew!! Oh my, now we are talking, oops, can't go there. This is read by the public after all. Oh well, buy 'em and see for yourself. You can not go wrong. Thank you apricot kings and queens.

  7. Excellent unsulfered aps from the USA

    Posted by al jesaitis on Feb 1st 2022

    I like the flavor of both sulfured and sulfured apricots. These were very good. Packaging was excellent.

  8. Tangy and chewy sweet treats.

    Posted by Sandra on Jan 2nd 2022

    Moist and tangy, the best I have tried so far. l used to buy them at Trader Joe's but too 'leathery' and difficult to chew. ApricotKing comes out on top once again with this sulfur free treat, really good with one or two in a cup of tea!

  9. Unsulphured Blenheim Apricots 2021

    Posted by Charlotte on Dec 27th 2021

    These are the best unsulphured apricots!!!!! I love the Blenheim apricots and taste of these are by far the best. I have tried other orchards and they don’t rival these in taste or texture. I am a repeat customer and will keep coming back! Thanks so much for your hard work!
