SWEET, EXTRA-LARGE BERRIES
Our fruit of the month for May is the delicious giant sweet strawberry. Grown in carefully tended fields just above Monterey Bay in California, these berries grow extremely large and are extra juicy. Morning coastal fog and sunny afternoons provide the perfect conditions for extraordinary strawberries. An open winter in California helped the strawberry plants to produce fruit two weeks ahead of schedule. This gift offering is truly our freshest as berries are harvested at daybreak, packed mid-day, and shipped to customers the same afternoon. These giant berries are impressive and often it takes five bites to eat just one.
We are currently packing our gifts with Empires apples from New York and Jazz apples from WA.
Royal Verano Pears are shipping on time.
Pineapples will continue to ship for the next week.
Strawberries have begun shipping - early than expected. For peak freshness they ship expedited, and customers will start receiving them soon. Strawberry shipments will continue through Mother’s Day.
