I bought this box and was immediately thrown off by the shipping cost. It's very misleading to list an item at a certain price and have the shipping cost double the price, especially when it's shipped in a flat rate box. However, I decided to give it a try anyway. My first box arrived on time. I didn't have the packaging issues other people have mentioned. It was actually packaged very nicely. I was disappointed to get 2 overripe avocados I couldn't use, but I enjoyed the rest of the items. However, I got my second box yesterday and half the items were completely rotten. There's no way the person who packed it didn't notice they were overripe. One of the lemons was completely green and white, fuzzy, and squishy. The avocados were in the same state. And the tangerines and one orange were way too soft. Overall it was pretty gross.
I purchased a box as a gift for a friend, it arrived in a timely manner, however she informed me that the softer fruits were not packaged appropriately and arrived pretty banged up. She did say that the pears were delicious.
