Even though the summer has only just begun, it's already extremely hot here in South Florida.
As always, it is important to keep track of your order in transit especially if you live somewhere with extreme summer temperatures.
You have the option to select overnight shipping at the checkout for extra security, which is highly recommended during the summer. This means we will send your box next day air. Overnight shipping means your fruit will arrive the day after we ship, not the day after you order.
We send a shipping confirmation email with tracking info so that you can keep track of your box. As always, 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 that tracking information as soon as your order is in transit!
You can sign up for email and/or text updates from the carrier to keep track of your shipment along every point on its route. This is extremely important if your area is experiencing harsh weather so that you can bring your box indoors as soon as it is delivered.
If your box is left outside your home or inside the box too long, the fruit inside may ripen too quickly.
If you are not able to be home when the box is delivered and you are concerned about your package being left out in the heat outside your home, it is your responsibility to call the shipping carrier for them to hold it at their facility for you to pick up. They will do this for free for you. This is highly recommended if you live in rural regions.
If you do not want to choose this option, then it is your responsibility to make arrangements to get someone to bring your box inside your home for you if you are away.
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.
As usual, we suggest to take all of your fruit out of the box as soon as you bring it inside, as it will not ripen properly if left piled on top of each other.
Ripe ready to eat fruit can be eaten right away or refrigerated. We always recommend that unripe fruit is kept room temperature.
If you have any issues with the fruit you receive, then you MUST email us the same day the box arrives.
