Q: Where is the fruit grown?

Our summer stone fruit (peaches, nectarines, cherries, etc.) originate from orchards in California and the Pacific Northwest. FruitShare’s premium citrus fruits are grown in groves located in California, Florida and Texas. Our blueberries are grown in Michigan, Minnesota and New Jersey as well as the regions mentioned above. Learn more about our organic growers in our newsletter sent with every shipment. Back to top
Q: What’s the difference between the fruit I get from FruitShare and the fruit I can get in the grocery store?
A: When you purchase FruitShare, you are getting the top picks from the best organic orchards and farms in the country. We ship direct, which means you get a freshness advantage because the fruit is delivered to you literally days after it’s picked. As you’ve probably experienced, fruit from other sources can be hit or miss. Who hasn’t purchased an apple at the grocery store, only to get it home and discover a mushy core? From years of experience, we know which orchards and groves do the best job of growing great tasting, nutritious fruit. Equally as important, we know how to get it to you at its peak flavor. Picked fresh. Shipped fast. Always organic. That’s FruitShare. Back to top.

Q: Are there any possibilities of substitutions due to crop failure?
A: Each season is different, and occasionally there are changes in our regular shipments due to weather events outside our control. To keep you informed, we post updates and insights during the organic fruit harvest on Twitter click here. If weather conditions cancel a regularly planned delivery, we’ll substitute a different fruit variety of equal or greater value. Back to top.
Q: What if I have questions regarding fruit taste or quality?
A: We pack premium organic fruit of the highest grade available at the time of shipment, and we’ll work hard to make your FruitShare experience positive. We value you as a customer. If there are problems with the fruit because of shipping damage or ripening anomalies, we will make it right. Due to the perishable nature of fresh produce, on occasion you may receive fruit with some bruising or cosmetic defects. Even the highest grades we pack at the orchard or grove have some tolerance for these imperfections, and each season is different. Give us a try you'll find FruitShare maintains very high levels of customer satisfaction. Please contact Everett Myers at 651-644-2800 or email@example.com if you have questions or concerns.
