How does delivery work?

Each order is hand-picked and packed by our trained professionals. Unlike many other gift fruit suppliers that outsource their order fulfillment, we hand pack and quality control inspect each item. Each order will then be delivered individually to the shipping address the customer provides on their online order. There are no additional delivery charges or hidden fees! Your customers can select a “deliver by” date, and once their order is placed they will receive a tracking number from our shipper.

Once you get the word out initially, don’t forget to follow up with a reminder or two!

Be sure to include:

• Alumni Members
• Babysitters
• Clergy
• Clients / Customers
• Co-workers
• Coaches
• Doctors / Dentists
• Employees
• Family Members (Aunts & Uncles, Cousins, Grandparents, Parents, Siblings, etc.)
