Are you looking to send some fruit as a Christmas gift this year? I recommend buying your fruit baskets from Bountiful Fruit. This is the online store created by Stemilt Growers. They sell fruit grown in the Pacific Northwest, one of the best regions for growing things like pears and apples. They have a lot of wonderful choices and all the fruit is of the highest quality. You can buy one certain variety of apples, or get a mix of apples, or mix of apples and pears, and these are just a few options. They have some gift baskets that come with fruit and some fruit-based sauces. I have had some of their SweeTango apples before and they were both beautiful and delicious. As for shipping, they do offer FREE 2-day shipping.
If you are looking for last minute gift or a way to save some money, they will be running a 3 day sale starting on December 19th. All of their apple gift packs will be 15% off from 12/19 through 12/22 at noon PST. If you order anything during this sale it will arrive anywhere in the United States by December 24th. The coupon code to use when you checkout is – HOLIDAY15.
