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. there's nothing better. period

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 6th 2021

    Bought 10 bags to (hopefully) carry us through until next season!

  2. Simply the best

    Posted by Steven Belsky on Sep 4th 2021

    I've been eating dried cots my whole life and in 66 trips around the sun, these are the best I've ever had. Period.

  3. Delicious, chewy and nutritious

    One Iof a kind unsulpheted and dried to perfection aoricits.
    Simply the best.

  4. Chewy goodness.

    Posted by Sandra on Aug 29th 2021

    While i love the sulfured groups I 'need' these unsulfured to stave me over! Chewy, tasty apricots that don't last long around me! Also good for cooking for true apricot flavor, try them in rice! An old Armenian 'wedding rice' is cooked with lots of buttery goodness and topped with steaming chopped apricots, slivered almonds, dates and raisins, was considered a treat and looked great for any wedding dinner service.

  5. Who needs a freezer?

    Posted by Leslie Wustrack on Apr 12th 2021

    You won't require a freezer because they will be consumed immediately. The Apricot King and Queen have outdone all other food purveyors.

  6. Second time purchasing from Apricot King/ Highly recommended

    Posted by Elissa B on Apr 11th 2021

    I started buying dried unsulfured Blenheim apricots from two different farms in Hollister after Trader Joe's stopped selling them a couple years ago. While neither farm seems to have the same dried apricots as Trader Joe's used to carry (not as large or tart), they are not bad. Since one bag is twice the price of the TJs ones, even with a discount, I am not able to purchase them very often. Customer service is great! They are shipped immediately and arrive promptly.

  7. Best Apricots in the Land.

    Posted by STEVEN THOMPSON on Apr 10th 2021

    I order my Apricots here, and since trying the Blenheim Apricots, I would never go back to eating any other. Totally love them. Thank you for making these wonderful apricots available.

  8. Delicious!

    Posted by Lee Armlovich on Apr 3rd 2021

    I first had ApricotKing's chocolate dipped apricots as favors at a wedding reception and loved them. When I went online to order some of those, I saw the unsulphured apricots and thought I'd try them. They are outstanding!! It's nearly impossible to not eat the entire bag in the first couple days. Thank you Gonzales family for continuing to grow these wonderful apricots!

  9. Blenheim apricots, the best!

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 29th 2021

    These are the best apricots in the world! I mean that and they are hard to find. Until I had an Apricot King apricot, I thought I had seen the end of an era. I have not tasted the real thing in at least 20 yrs. I noticed a change in how apricots tasted, their size and availability. Apricot King's Blenheim's remind me of my the trees on my fathers property in Southern California when I was a child. Over the years these apricots seemed to disappear. Thank you so much Apricot King!

  10. Chewy & Delicious

    Posted by Dana & Mike on Mar 22nd 2021

    I used to search in stores - often with no luck - for non-sulfured Blenheim apricots and I am SO glad to have found your family product to order online. These are fabulous apricots for both snacking and cooking, and your customer service is excellent. THANK YOU!
