***Ciruela is currently available for Pre-Order. When placing a Pre-Order, this means the fruit box you have ordered is not currently in season, or is extremely limited in season. Your pre-order holds your place in line on our wait list. When Ciruela comes into season and is ready to harvest from the trees, you will receive your order as soon as possible.***
Important Info: Our Ciruela is picked green, and is intended to be consumed green and unripe. We cannot guarantee our Green Ciruela could be ripened to a red color on the counter.
Origin: Spondias purpura, commonly known as Jocote, or Ciruela is a fruit native to the tropical regions of South America.
Flavor Profile: Green Ciruela is tart, flavorful, and satisfying!
How To Eat: Many people enjoy eating green ciruela with a pinch of salt. The skin and pulp are fully edible, while the seed should not be consumed.
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- A Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds
- A Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
*CANNOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA*
USDA restricts the shipment of Ciruela from Florida to California at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
