Although this heirloom variety once grew in abundance throughout the Santa Clara Valley, urbanization and a risky harvest season have endangered the Blenheim Apricot. Yet, nestled between the Diablo and Gabilan mountain ranges, you can find B & R Farms’ bustling Blenheim Apricot orchard, where warm days and cool nights allow the fruit to flourish. Complex in flavor, the Blenheim Apricot boasts a tart skin that is perfectly balanced by a sugary-sweet flesh. Its beauty and incredible aroma draw you in, even before your first bite.
