Mail order fruit recomendations
« on: September 09, 2012, 02:22:34 PM »
For those of us who don't live in the tropics, subtropics, or areas where interesting fruits are imported....  what recommendations are there for mail order fruit?

I've had good results with www.cherimoya.com but I'd like a wider palate of things to order.  Looking for things like feijoa, monstera,...  Whole Foods was (for a time) selling feijoa, monstera, white sapote,... at prices below standard mail order, but sadly they dropped that line (I think they should have promoted it with free samples, they could have garnered a lot of new customers that way) and so I don't even check them out anymore.

This would be a good post for me to add to the FAQ.

I've gotten fruit from http://farmtropical.com/.  Here is my review of the order: http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=2519

I read your post but didn't check the place out at first because I thought they did just mamey and avacado.  I looked at them and see they sell abiu and other things too (the miracle fruit is a bit insanely priced but the abiu seems reasonable).

Thanks for reminding me of it since they seem to have a nice assortment.

I never get why everyone is selling dragonfruit, it seems to have less flavor than any other member of the cactus family...

Thanks for the mango places.

I can get Kent, Hayden, Keitt at a place not too far from my house, but these should be a good compliment to that.

Anxiously awaiting my Abiu order.....
