Ordering fruit online?

Has anybody had any experience ordering fruit online? I'm not talking about those gift basket things. I'm talking about ordering apples, oranges, mangoes, etc.

If you've had good experiences, any website suggestions?

My local grocery store just doesn't have a very good fruit selection. For example, I've been looking for plums for like the last 3 weeks and they haven't had any. I don't think it's a seasonal issue because they had plums like 2 months ago, so I'm just assuming they'd be available now too. And I've always wanted to try different varieties of apples. My grocery store only seems to have old standbys--granny smith, Braeburn, gala, red delicious, etc. I'd like to try some different varieties.

Anyway, any suggestions or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Re: Ordering fruit online?

My ex-roommates ordered fruits and vegetables from an online distributor. It was delivered once a week I believe. They raved about it. I remember it being a tad pricy, but if I had the extra money I'd probably try something like that since I only grocery shop twice a month.

I've ordered fruit online from Full Circle Farms (a company that flies produce up to Alaska). It was quite expensive, but far better than what we get in stores here.

If you live in an area with a large Asian population, try the Asian grocery stores. Most carry a larger variety of fruits and vegetables then your typical chain grocery store.

There's no farmer market or CSA nearby?

Sort of, but it's still like a 30 minute drive. The closest one to me is only open on Wednesday afternoon/evening during the summer and I'm unavailable every Wednesday afternoon/evening.

Re: Ordering fruit online?

I've ordered Oranges from Hale Grooves. Expensive but were really good up until the last time I ordered a year ago. Probably just a bad season but the batch I ordered and then the replacement batch they sent me weren't very good.

My in-laws send us boxes for fruit from Pittman and Davis. Sometimes they're excellent fresh fruit. Sometimes they're the hard, dry stuff like we get in the supermarket.

Skip grocery stores and hit up a farmers market. Better fruit & cheaper most of the time.
