Grab The Correct Box Of Fruit

Grab The Correct Box Of Fruit

If you were looking forward to the very box of fruit that you ordered, but when you came to pick up, you discovered that someone else had mistakenly taken your box, I’m guessing you would be pretty disappointed. Anybody would, right?

As we loaded our trucks for delivery and considered how similar some of the citrus boxes look, we knew it would be good for you to be aware of the differences so you’re sure to leave with the things you ordered. Your host will be able to point you to the right box too, so if in doubt, confirm with your host. Here are a few things you’ll want to check.

  • There are organic, IPM (minimally sprayed), and conventional fruits. The organic fruit is clearly labeled “Organic” but the IPM and conventional fruits don’t bear any special label.
  • There is “fancy” fruit and “choice” fruitMost of the boxes are stamped or stickered with a “choice” or “fancy” label on the end of the box. A few are handwritten. The exception to this is the IPM navel oranges:  the fancy IPM navels come in a blue box bearing the Blue Jay brand. The choice IPM navels say “Victor” on the box.
  • There are 4/5 bushels (approx 40 lb) and also some smaller sizes. Make sure you’re getting the right size box.

So check over your order before you grab and go. The fruit we’ve sampled so far has been amazing! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Have you ordered your oranges yet?

Have you ordered your fresh oranges yet?
How about your grapefruit, mandarins, minneolas, lemons, limes, and early oranges?Wow! That’s a lot of fruit.

Did you know the most common thing we hear from folks after an order like this one is that they wish they had ordered another box or two?

  • I loved everything. Quality was excellent. I got Mandarins (which were the best I ever had). I wish I’d ordered 2boxes. Still enjoying oranges and grapefruits. You did good.   -Shelia
  • The grapefruit were great!  Wish I had ordered 2 boxes.  The oranges have been good as well.  I ordered organic and have been pleased with the quality.  -Ann
  •  Excellent grapefruit and oranges wish I had ordered more!!  -Melissa
  • This was my first order from BNF, but it will not be my last.  I love the gallon jars…it’s hard to order just a couple at a time, but no need to be stingy, eh?  The Texas Early oranges are fabulous…some of the sweetest I’ve ever had.  Some started to go soft, so I made juice with the remaining fruit this afternoon.  I wish I had more so I could have a freezer full of juice :).  -Marsha
  • The mandarins were fantastic. Wish I had ordered two boxes!  -Paula
  • Beautiful and delicious!!  I always order the B grade because we are on a tight budget and don’t really care if there are blemishes.  You upgraded our order to fancy, and I was blown away by the difference.  This fruit is wonderful, easy to peel and tasty.  I wish I would have gotten more!  -Kristin
