Earl’s Organic Buyer’s Notes June 30, 2019

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Blenheim apricots are the most coveted of the apricot varieties and are fast disappearing. They were brought to California from England in the 1880’s and were grown mostly in the Sacramento and Santa Clara valleys. They have great apricot flavor but are not good travelers and are usually only found at farmers markets. Many growers have abandoned the Blenheim in favor of varieties that are grown for their long shelf life and ability to travel long distances.  There are only a few growers left in California and Earl’s is fortunate to be carrying Dwelley Blenheim apricots, a fourth generation farm, from Brentwood, California.
