We ship to all valid US addresses in the lower 48 states including US PO Boxes. Packages are carried to their destination on temperature controlled gift fruit trucks and transferred to FedEx for local delivery. For information regarding delivery to Canada click here.

Fruit is fresh harvested in season, packed and shipped weekly to most points, more often during the holiday and Honeybell seasons, unless noted otherwise in product description. Therefore you should anticipate arrival within 5-14 days of placing your order, or, if the fruit is not yet in season, as soon as possible pending fruit maturity. See individual product descriptions for expected availability dates.

USDA restricted states(Arizona, California, Lousiana & Texas) are shipped on a reduced, fixed schedule. More information and the shipping schedule are available here.

2-3 day delivery and Overnight delivery are available for most products at additional cost, subject to fruit availability. Because fresh products are harvested for packing, some items may not be available at all times. See "Expedited Delivery Service" for further information and a schedule of additional charges.

Fruit to Arizona, California, Louisiana and Texas is specially handled to meet the agricultural requirements of these states.

Due to the regulatory restrictions, we ship less frequently to these Special Points. The table below shows the deadline dates for shipments to USDA restricted states for the 2020-2021 season. The dates below represent the last date on which to order fruit for the next shipment, which will subsequently depart in 2 days.
