The Blenheim apricot has been grown in the Santa Clara Valley region of California since the early 1900s, when it was one of the most widely planted varieties. The Blenheim is both sweet and tart with an intensely fragrant aroma of honeysuckle, similar to other varieties like the Royal. The Blenheim ripens from the inside out, so it takes longer to mature than most other apricots. The revival of the Blenheim is happening mostly at local farmers markets where long-distance shipping is not a critical issue.
