Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Organic Heirloom Apples for Sale
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:06:51 PM »
Hi all.
I purchased a sampler box of these apples, and have nothing but praise from A-Z.
First, Nadine, is a joy to talk to and communicate with, and this is clearly a passion for her more so than a business.
The fruit arrived when promised. It was immaculately packed with zero damage (something I  probably have never experienced before in dozens of fruit orders).
The apples are delicious and of excellent texture.Nothing like the horse manure you buy in the stores or even at most farmer's markets.
I truly give the whole experience a 10/10.
I have no affiliation with Nadine. Just happy to leave her the glowing review her project richly deserves. Don't take my word for it, order some for yourself.

sorry cant offer you any to trade but i'd love to buy some of your fruit if thats an option

for the last couple of years, I have ordered many boxes of mangoes from this phenomenal supplier but unfortunately this year due to lower supply and time time availability, Walter was unable to ship to me.
If anyone is willing to buy some mangoes for me from here and ship them to me, I would be happy to pay you for your trouble.

can anyone source some for me and ship a box to NY? I would be happy to pay above market price.

Thanks for the replies.

If anyone has any good quality mangoes that are ripe but still very hard and would be willing to ship to me in NY, happy to pay your going rate for the fruit plus postage and packing etc.
please message me.
Or if you know of any places that currently have fruit that ship, please reply here.

I have a client from Trinidad who was virtually in tears reminiscing about Julie mangoes.
If anyone is willing to ship a few to NY for me to pass on to her, I'd pay them very nicely.

For me, Duncan is not up there with the great mangoes. Definitely a second or 3rd tier mango.
I wouldn't touch a mango if I could get hold of any of about 20 different top tier mangoes.
That said if I found a duncan in my bed in Winter, I wouldn't kick it out of bed.

wow i wish i had known about Hicks in my youth ((3 years ago) when I was crazy and had the time to kill tropical fruit over 2-3 years.

outstanding in every respect Jay. Job really well done buddy, although I know you have just gotten started on the site. Am excited to get the shirt. Dont worry about the refund. Consider it my down-payment for the next set of keys Sheehan loses.
I only skimmed the site for now but am excited to read it in depth in due course. Not so excited to see a picture of me from just a few years ago and notice just how fat I got in just a few years. Oh well. Again, the best addition to my fruit life since the tropical fruit forum. Nice job Jay.

An honor to have been invited and to get to spend time among great people, incredibly generous hosts, spectacular landscapes and delicious fruit. Ian's mangosteen are always delicious but this year they were bigger than usual and far more plentiful. I did briefly consider tying everyone up and hauling ass with his mangosteen crop but then I realized I am not strong enough to tie anyone up against their will except for maybe sheehan who wasnt there.
The only thing missing from this trip was sheehan and for sure, the belly-laugh count suffered, but other than that, as perfect as a trip can get. Thanks to everyone especially Jay, Ian, Einadas and Juan.

ive had a couple of LZ last year and thought they were excellent but from memory i thought the OS was slightly better but I suppose you really need to eat two side by side to make a fair comparison. Sheehan- sorry, i forgot i got it from you. thats two really great things you have sent my way. three if you include the fact that u took the heat for me when it was really me who lost the car rental key!

I did not ask for any info about the orange sherbet as they only found one for me at the last second and then we had to leave.

update- i just ate the one orange sherbet mango that mrs zill managed to dig up for me. holy cow- that is one insane mango. truly tastes like orange sherbet. lucky i didnt have 10 of those mangoes or I would have eaten all 10 in one go and gotten really sick. might be the best mango ive ever had, and as a bonus, the skin peels right off the flesh almost like a clementine.

Got to eat quite a few mangoes today in the South Florida area. In general, the standard was a little lower than last year, likely to do with massive amount of rain that has come down in the last month. There were a few real crackers though. Providence- a chance seedling from the Walter Zill orchard. Sweet Tart- another Zill mango was excellent. SOM  a Malika seedling from Harry was really good, as was a seedling mango Clint brought. Edgar was really good too. Some of the notable less flavorful than usual mangoes were pickering, duncan and malika.
great 10 hour trip and I came back with a suitcase full of mangoes including keit, orange sherbert, carrie, sinc, doloras, hatcher, sweet tarm, and SOM.

the shape and color look like brewster though its unusual for brewster to have chicken tongue seeds. so not sure!
generally, brewster ripen a few weeks after mauritius. which variety is more available now- b or m?

nice pics= difficult to tell for sure from distance but mauritius lychees are notmally partiallyy green so those or more likely to be brewster
