Recently, a large crate of fruit arrived at my doorstep, courtesy of The FruitGuys, a company that delivers mostly locally grown, organic and conventional fruit to offices and homes nationwide.
From across the room, I can smell the fresh fruit and it was still in its box. Opening it up, I’m hit with a kaleidoscope of brilliant colors. It’s like a farmer’s market in a box.
It doesn’t come in just any ol’ box, it looks like a custom-made box with very convenient handles on the sides (totally recyclable of course). And the fruit was well-protected for their trip in their own little compartments.
As for taste, each piece of fruit was sweet and full of flavor. From delicious strawberries to crisp apples to juicy citrus, it was all fresh and tasty. I don’t think there was a bad one in the bunch.
You’re probably thinking, why not just go to the farmer’s market for fruit? You could but sometimes there isn’t one nearby or it’s not open year-around or you’re just too busy to make it to the market.
In fact, I’m signing up my mom for the service. I think it would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift. Mom doesn’t like to drive all that much nowadays so it’s a challenge for her to get good fruit. A fruit delivery is nice and healthy and something besides the usual flowers or candy.
