All About Shipping

No additional shipping charges are added on to gift packages, if your package is to be delivered within the lower 48 states. Please read exclusions below.

Seasonal Availability:
We pick and pack to order. To assure you of the freshest citrus from our groves we process your order the same day we pick your fruit. It then takes one day normally; sometimes two, to process, grade, and pack your fruit.

Fruit Availability Chart:
Please refer to the Fruit Availability chart when placing your orders. Orders placed for citrus not in season could be processed and your shipping label held until the fruit is ready for shipping. We cannot provide you with an exact ship date or day. Each week we only pick the finest citrus from groves that Mother Nature has provided. This could vary by as much as a couple of days or a couple of weeks.

UPS Ground Results:
