Royal Blenheim Apricots (1)
Royal Blenheim Apricots (1)
The endangered Blenheim apricot (support your local grower!) as well as other stone fruits have been crowding local farmers markets here in the Los Angeles area recently. These are from the Ojai area. ***** Hail to the Royals Blenheims epitomize summer's best Early summer heralds the coming of the best little apricot on the market Janet Fletcher, San Francisco Chronicle Staff Writer From the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris to England's Blenheim Palace to the imperiled orchards of Brentwood and Gilroy, California's finest apricot has had a long journey. Whether you call it the Blenheim, the Royal or, covering all bases, the Royal Blenheim, this petite but sublime variety compensates with great taste for what it lacks in good looks. "Other apricots are huge and bright orange, and I'd rather eat a cotton ball," says Andy Powning, produce specialist for Greenleaf Produce in San Francisco. During the few fleeting weeks in early summer when Blenheims appear in Bay Area farmers' markets, many consumers eye their small size and green shoulders and pass them by. But knowledgeable shoppers know that they're the best-eating 'cots in the market and superb for jam and desserts. What many might not know is that the Blenheim is a vanishing fruit, hammered by foreign competition and its own finicky nature. "In another 50 years, nobody will give a (expletive)," says a discouraged Todd Kennedy, an agricultural attorney in San Francisco and longtime advocate for endangered fruit. The Blenheim could go the way of the greengage plum, he says, remembered by only a few. Even Kennedy, an amateur fruit historian, can't quite unravel the Blenheim's tangled genealogy. One theory traces it back to a seedling planted in the Luxembourg Gardens and introduced to the public around 1815 under the name Royal. About 20 years later, the daughter of the head gardener at Blenheim Palace, a man named Shipley, planted a seed said to be from the Royal. The tree thrived and its fruit was called Shipley's Blenheim. "So the Royal comes out of France, Shipley's Blenheim comes out of England, and they probably have some shared bloodline," Kennedy says. Both varieties made it to California by the 1880s and entered the commercial nursery trade. During World War I, when shipments of dried fruit from Europe came to a halt, demand for apricot trees in California spiked. Nursery growers, in their haste to fill orders, failed to maintain the varieties' integrity and shipped whatever they had, Kennedy surmises. The names Royal and Blenheim have been used indiscriminately ever since, an identity problem that "presses for solution," wrote E. J. Wickson in 1921 in his authoritative book, "California Fruits.'' The intensely flavored Blenheim -- the name used here for the sake of consistency -- became the preference in California drying yards, with the result that by the 1920s Blenheim orchards blanketed Santa Clara and Alameda counties and the Sacramento Valley. Compared to the Tilton, another popular variety at the dry yards, the Blenheim had a higher drying ratio. From each pound of fresh fruit, you got more dried fruit, says Jane Wolfe, whose father-in-law planted apricots in Brentwood in 1935. Vanishing orchards By the end of the 20th century, most of these orchards had been turned into office parks and tract homes. For the few remaining Blenheim growers, the dried market has all but collapsed with the growing dominance of cheaper Turkish dried apricots. "They've got us beat on the labor," complains John Zoria, who has 600 acres of Blenheims in Brentwood and Los Banos, and believes he is the state's largest grower. California apricots are manually halved before drying. Turkish apricots are "slip-pitted," which means the pit is removed from the partially dried 'cots without halving them. These whole fruits dry more slowly and less evenly, says Tom Tjerandsen, manager of the California Fresh Apricot Council. But the price difference -- Turkish apricots can be one-quarter to one-half the price of their California competitors -- helps buyers overlook what Tjerandsen says is inferior quality. For California's Blenheim growers, the choices are few. They can try to sell the variety on the fresh market, a difficult proposition. They can replace the trees with newer varieties like Patterson and Earlicot that are easier to market fresh. Or they can throw in the towel. Delicate fruit "When I retire, I think they're going to become alfalfa fields," says Zoria of his Blenheim orchards. "I don't have anybody in the family who wants to pick it up." His Sicilian grandfather planted apricots in the San Jose area in 1920, and the family used to sell one or two tons of fresh Blenheims a day from its retail farm stand. But sending the apricots through conventional distribution channels to supermarkets is another matter. "They're so delicate, it's almost impossible to put them in the fresh m
