Hot Weather Guidelines 🌞
- You'll receive an email with tracking information as soon as a shipping label is printed in preparation for your order, and see movement on the tracking information as soon as your order is in transit!
It is important to keep track of your order in transit, especially if you live somewhere with extremely hot temperatures.
- You can sign up for email and/or text updates from FedEx to keep track of your shipment along every point on its route.
Bring your box indoors as soon as it is delivered.
Leaving the fruit outside for too long can lead to quick ripening and potential spoiling.
If you aren't available to receive the package when it arrives, we suggest contacting the shipping carrier to have them hold it at their facility for your convenience. This service is complimentary.
Or you can ask someone to bring your box inside your home for you.
Many of the fruits we ship are ready to eat when you receive them. Some of them must wait to ripen. You can find out more ripening info here.
Take all of your fruit out of the box as soon as you bring it inside. Fruits produce natural ethylene gases as they ripen, which causes other fruits nearby to ripen quicker. The box traps these gases, thus causing them to ripen even faster.
Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit can be kept cold or refrigerated. We always recommend that unripe fruit is kept at room temperature. Some unripe fruits can withstand cooler temperatures than others. Annonas like soursop and sugar apples especially must not be kept cold for longer than 24 hours until they are ripe.
If you have any issues with the fruit you receive, then you MUST email us the same day the box arrives per our Refund Policy: firstname.lastname@example.org
