Tropical Fruit Variety Box
Our Tropical Variety Box is comprised of a variety of delicious, seasonal rare tropical fruits. Our Tropical Variety Box includes fruits which are currently available and that we are picking at the time of your order. We include some of the most delicious fruits we have to offer in this box. While the contents of our Tropical Variety Box alternates with each season throughout the year, many of the fruits we offer are included in our Variety Box at some point. However, some exclusions do exist. We ship extremely sensitive types of fruits with custom expedited shipping; therefore, Soursop and most Annona fruits are not included in our Tropical Variety Box and must be purchased separately. Other fruits not included in our Tropical Variety Box are generally incompatible due to fruit size and harvest limitations. If you would like to make a special request for your Variety Box in order to substitute a particular fruit, if it is in season and nature permits, we are happy to accommodate these requests. If you would like to include a sensitive fruit type to your Tropical Variety Box, you must submit a custom order note, and select overnight shipping in checkout. Enjoy!
Note: Pineapples are not included in our variety boxes.
A Tropical Variety Box is comprised of various types of fruits which have different ripening instructions. Some fruits will arrive ripe and ready to eat, while others do not ripen naturally on the tree and must be ripened at room temperature until soft. Many fruits will have seeds, however the seeds of most types of fruits are not edible and should be discarded. Before you cut into any of your fruits, you should visit our Fruit Ripening Guide, or visit the respective product page for each type of fruit you have received. This will provide you with the information you need to know about how to ripen, eat and store your fruit once it is ripe. Of the fruits we ship in our Tropical Variety Box, the only fruits with edible seeds are: All Dragon Fruits, Tomarillo, Star Fruit (Carambola), Guava, Passion Fruit, all seeded Bananas, Granadilla, Lilikoi. All other seeds must be discarded. If you receive a fruit in your Tropical Variety Box which is not listed here, visit our products page and locate the product. In the product description for each fruit, we articulate whether the seed is edible. If you cannot find this information and are uncertain, out of an abundance of caution, do not consume the seeds. Thank you.
Why our fruits are the best:
Our fruits are allowed to grow on the trees further into the growing season to allow proper fruit development for optimal flavor, vitamin and nutrient content. Our fruits are picked from our own rare tropical fruit trees, from the trees of our local partners, collectors, and sourced internationally from sustainable organic niche farmers.
