    Tropical Fruit Season Guide ⛅️

To find the most up-to date what's in season list, check out our latest blog post HERE and sign up for our email newsletter to get what's in season lists sent right to your inbox.

    What's in Season for December 🍌

    What's in Season for December 🍌

    Harvest Update 11/30/16

    Black Sapote is BACK! and Eggfruit is coming in!! + 2 NEW Annonas and Freeze Dried Eggfruit! Persimmons are DONE.


    This week we harvested Magana variety Mamey Sapote for the first time this season! This fruit can get massive, and is known for its rich texture.

    The earliest variety of black sapote was harvested this Monday! We are still fulfilling pre-orders at this time. This is a very popular pre-order fruit, so if you would like to receive it soon we recommend ordering now.

    Eggfruit is also starting to trickle in! We are discovering lots of varieties and we have been enjoying the rich, sweet flavor of this cake-like fruit.

    Sugar apple has been more abundant than usual, which is why we have decided to list it on the website for pre-order! You may also find one of these annonas in your box if you ordered a variety box last week or the week before.

    Atemoya is a rare fruit here in South Florida. We were only able to harvest a dozen last Monday and there's not much left. It is a hybrid mix of cherimoya and sugar apple. If you ordered a variety box, you may find one in your box as well.

    Persimmons are completely gone from the eight trees that we pick from. We were only able to harvest a few pounds this week. You can always pre-order them for next season if you want to be first in line for the next harvest.

    Freeze Dried Eggfruit is now available! Light and crunchy, yet rich in flavor. This makes the perfect on the go snack or meal. We have sample packs for $4 and larger packs for $10.

    Our good friend Chris Kendall from TheRawAdvantage.com made an amazing video test-tasting our freeze dried fruits in New York City! We laughed out loud watching this video, it was hilarious. You can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZf-cnjvXmE

    Here's a picture of some Miami Fruit team members selling fruit at a Tech-talk in Wynwood Miami! We had a great time talking to people and selling fruits along with coconut water and mamey/banana smoothies.

    Speaking of smoothies, I made this delicious smoothie bowl out of frozen black sapote, almond milk, water, cacao powder, dates, and a drop of peppermint oil. It was delicious! You can find more black sapote recipe ideas here.



    Fruits/roots we harvested this week:
    mamey sapote, one jackfruit, gac fruit, eggfruit, coconuts, black sapote, goldfinger bananas, mysore bananas, nam wah banananas, kandrian bananas, thousand finger bananas, rambutan, longan, turmeric, passion fruit, avocado, red dragonfruit, sugar apple, atemoya, and the last of the persimmons!

    Fruits that will most likely be available in December:
    black sapote, mamey sapote, egg fruit, passionfruit, bananas, avocado, and some gac fruit.

    We are always on the hunt for new fruits so the list above is subject to change!



    Make sure to check out our Ripening Guide to find out when to properly eat your fruit at peak ripeness. If there is a fruit that is not on the ripening guide, please feel free to email us about it. Also, if you need help identifying your fruits in a variety box, line up the fruits from left to right and email us picture for us to identify for you.

    Harvest Day! + More Rare Fruits

    Harvest Day! + More Rare Fruits

    It was an extra special Monday today for Miami Fruit. We harvested the very first Rollinia from the tree in our backyard! This tropical fruit is very hard to grow in Miami and currently only a handful of trees are producing it here! 

    Here is John and Rane with an amazing farmer that grows some of the rarest bananas in the world.

    Here is a pic of a special variety known as Cardaba, but I think it should be called CARBaba because this banana is so rich and satisfying. ;)

    Florida is well known for its amazing avocados. South Florida alone grows over 50 different varieties. This variety is creamy and high water content, which means it is lower fat than most has avocados you find at the store.
    Egg fruit is beginning to pop up all over South Florida right now, some varieties are taking longer to ripen than we originally thought, so we were only able to harvest enough for one box this week, but we should have more available very soon.

    Gac Fruit! This was a rare find at one the fruit farms in South Florida. A few farmers grow this fruit, but not at a high enough rate to list on the website right now. This fruit is very rich in lycopene and beta-carotene. You can just tell it's good for you by the super vibrant color! If you are interested in this fruit, let us know and we will keep an eye out for you.
    Along with all of these amazing fruits, we also harvested more passionfruit, tropical persimmon, sprouted coconut, and ackee fruit this week! 

    What's in Season + Freeze Dried Dragonfruit Now Available! 🐉

    What's in Season + Freeze Dried Dragonfruit Now Available! 🐉

    It's time to get Fruity!

    11/10/16

    It is a transition of seasons here in Miami, which means a lot of new exiting fruits are coming in! 

    Mango, lychee, longan, pineapple, blue grape, and jackfruit are no longer in season.

    Persimmon and dragon fruit are going out of season, but we do have a small quantity left on the trees/vines. There is a limited amount available, so order now!

    Bananas are always in season in the tropics, but the trees ripen at different times. We harvest different varieties every week! Make sure to pre-order your favorite variety here. If you are not sure what variety you like best, you can always order a banana variety box to try a little bit of everything that we have that week. 

    Currently, papaya, passionfruit, avocado, rambutan, and canistel are in full season.

    Black sapote, noni, and magana mamey sapote should be coming very soon! You can pre-order black sapote now to get your name on the list for our first harvest.

    You can look out for star apple, jaboticaba, and sapodilla in a few months! 



    Young Miami coconuts on the tree!

    They fall to the ground when they are mature and begin to sprout after 6 months! This is where your sprouted coconut comes from.

    These passionfruit are beautiful!

    The flavor is sweet and citrusy. Passionfruit are best eaten with other sweet fruits such as mango, banana, or papaya.

    We are constantly adding new and exiting freeze dried fruits to the website. The freeze dried dragonfruit is a must-have!
