Enjoy 12 exquisite dried Blenheim Apricots dipped in Valrhona 62% dark chocolate.
The Blenheim variety, once the most widely planted in the Santa Clara Valley region of California, fell out of favor in the 1960s, as other earlier maturing and easily transportable varieties won over. They have seen a resurgence however at local farmer's markets where long distance shipping is not an issue.
Our Blenheims are grown and then dried by Fairhaven Orchards in Hollister, CA. They are both sweet and tart with an intense aroma of honeysuckle. These treats are very different from the Turkish variety that is most often sold by chocolatiers. Unlike their foreign counterparts, our apricots are not soaked in a sugar solution so they are drier, but much tastier. We think you will love them!
