Here's why: Hale Groves won't pick your fruit until we've receive your order. There's no warehouse. No cold storage, either. Fruit this fresh takes up to 14 days from tree to doorstep. Our Grove Manager is out testing and tasting and timing the harvest. Depending on weather and ripeness, this can take up to a week. Once he's sure everything's perfect, we quickly hand pick the citrus into field bins, which go straight to our packing house. During the next 24 hours, the citrus is rinsed, graded up to six times for quality, then expertly packed into gift boxes. Your fruit never sits idle once it's picked, it's always on the move. Next it's put in climate controlled trucks, and depending on the distance from Florida, this can take up to 5 days. Last we release your gifts to the USPS office nearest the final destination. That's why it absolutely arrives the freshest, best-tasting fruit available anywhere.

Oranges last longest in a cool area that’s well ventilated. They maintain their flavor and quality for up to six weeks when refrigerated between 35 degrees Fahrenheit and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Wipe off any surface moisture. Do not store in a plastic bag.
Grapefruit are best stored between 50 degrees Fahrenheit and 55 degrees Fahrenheit in a well ventilated, cool area away from moisture. The skin of the grapefruit can discolor if left in the refrigerator too long. Since it is a tropical fruit, it is sensitive to cold, but only superficially. Blemishes on the peel do not affect the flavor of the fruit inside.
