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 2021 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 need to be refrigerated.    They will hold in the freezer for over a year. 

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

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

The 2021 unsulphured crop has been a tremendous labor-intensive chore.

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

  1. 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!

  2. Apricots

    Posted by Eric on Dec 24th 2021

    The apricots were outstanding. I will order again.

  3. Perfect!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 13th 2021

    Try wrapping one of these just sweet enough, just tart enough plump and soft apricots around an ApricotKing Chandler walnut for a quick and satisfying snack!

  4. Delicious stewed!

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 13th 2021

    It’s virtually impossible to find unsulfured apricots in the stores. Trader Joe’s used to carry but not any more. These are the best. Simmer them to a jammy consistency and spread on whole wheat toast. Yummy healthful breakfast!

  5. Have to give these a try if you haven't yet.

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 4th 2021

    The unsulphured apricots may look bit dry but really, if you give them a chance, you'll love them, too! I often add them into breakfast eggs or French toasts. So very moist and flavorful, great start for a day!

  6. My favorite!

    Posted by Jane Erickson on Oct 9th 2021

    These unsulfured apricots are delicious! I have only found them a few places and these are the absolute best. Quality is consistent. Great for snacking right out of the bag or using and cooking. Thank you Apricot King!

  7. The BEST Blenheims!

    Posted by LR on Sep 30th 2021

    Long time unsulphured apricot buyer….. tried others, but ApricotKing is my “go-to” supplier. Consistently the best!

  8. Best Apricots in the Land

    Posted by STEVEN THOMPSON on Sep 29th 2021

    Obviously there remains no dried apricot that can come near the taste, nutrition, and quality of the Blenheim Apricot. ApricotKing is a fitting name. I have tried other brands, but Apricot King has my business because of the consistent quality of their products. Their dried mangos are also out of this world. I see now their dried mangos available. So, I order soon!

  9. Sweetest and best tasting dried apricots I've eaten in years!

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 25th 2021

    I use dried apricots in breads and cakes. Since ApricotKing's are the best tasting all by themselves, I can't wait for holiday baking!

  10. Wonderful

    Posted by Ken on Sep 22nd 2021

    Got 3 bags.Only opened one so far but I can say that it is great. Lots of good ones--big, smooth, sweet. Much better than my last batch which were mostly small and too dry/sourish. Thank you thank you thank you!!! Really good!!
