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.

12 oz Walnuts


Shaken off the trees in November, Cracked in December..........

They are truly the best walnuts you'll ever eat!  (Everyone says they'll never eat the store bought ones again)

They are light halves, Chandler variety, clean, blond-colored, and

have a wonderful "no-bite" buttery flavor.    12 oz   2 lbs

The secret to good walnuts is to keep them refrigerated.

They will hold in the refrigerator (never the freezer) for a year.


New studies show people who  eat nuts every day live longer, are healthier, and slimmer than those who don't eat nuts much or at all.

With that said, here's a little more help to really enjoy these heart-healthy goodies as we have the best premium walnuts around!!

**Our walnuts were certified organic until 2005...we've not changed our farming practices, just quit the certifying and paperwork fees that go with organic walnuts.

  1. Wonderful Walnuts

    Posted by Cindy J. on Jun 2nd 2024

    I have ordered these a few times before. I absolutely love them. They're great for snacking, baking, or in salads!

    These have the best flavor and buttery texture of any walnuts anywhere. Keep em in the fridge to retain their tiptop flavor!!

  3. Great walnuts!

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 19th 2024

    The walnuts from ApricotKing are better than anything you’ll find in the grocery store. They are tender and not at all bitter like some. I eat them out of hand and also use them in homemade granola. Perfect ingredient!

  4. Best Available Anywhere

    Posted by Mike in Tucson on Mar 13th 2024

    These are the best tasting, crunchiest walnuts I have ever tasted. The difference between these and any I have purchased in a supermarket is amazing! Try them / you will like them.

  5. Woohoo! The best walnuts ever!

    Posted by Kathlyn Llewellyn on Feb 13th 2024

    Since 1969, I have made sugared walnuts for the holidays. In 1991, I moved to Mountain View and found Patti and Gary’s walnuts at the farmers market, and have been buying them ever since. There is no going back! These walnuts are swoonalicious - the best I have ever found — I use them mostly in the sugared walnuts and in the Ina Garten (“Barefoot Contessa”) Outrageous Brownies, for eating out of hand, and in fruit salads. Smooth, smooth flavor - none of the “bite” I experienced in walnuts before I found these.

  6. Best walnuts ever!

    Posted by Deo on Feb 6th 2024

    I ordered these every year. They are always fresh with deep walnutty flavor. Nice unbroken halves, so they look great too.

  7. Great. Quality

    Posted by Laura Teitell on Nov 12th 2023

    I gave a bag of the walnut halves to a friend who is very picky about the quality of ingredients he cooks with. He tasted the walnuts and then threw out the bag he bought at the supermarket. I just gave him another bag and he was delighted. So fresh and with a great flavor and texture.

  8. Take a bite - they won't bite back

    Posted by Erica Mueller on Nov 6th 2023

    Mild flavored with good crunch. I wonder if the bitter component of most walnuts (not these) is the reason some people are allergic to them?

  9. The best!

    Posted by Anita Taylor on Oct 31st 2023

    These walnut are the best I have ever eaten. They are the only ones I will eat straight from the bag.

  10. Super Walnuts!

    Posted by rg on Oct 21st 2023

    I can't remember if I've ordered these before or not, but they have to be the best walnuts I've ever eaten!
