Mail Order Fruit

Mail order fruit purchases are a treat for the hungry raw foodist.

Tired of the usual bananas and oranges? There are dozens of companies who will furnish you with mangosteens, mamey sapote, jackfruit, fresh dates, and just about anything else your heart desires.

Mail order fruit is probably not a realistic option for your staples because the cost of shipping boosts the price too much. For every day buying I suggest you track down a local wholesale distributor or farmer. As an occasional treat, however, fruit-shipping companies can do wonders.

I've used them to track down all kinds of exotic tropical fruit I couldn't otherwise get and introduce myself to great new tastes.

Below you'll find a list of companies specializing in getting large orders of fruit from the tropics to you.

                        Fruit DatesBautista Family Organic Dates

Many dates found in supermarkets are often dehydrated and covered in chemicals, and probably aren't worth your time.

Bautista Family Organic Dates is one shipper that sells fresh dates harvested from their orchard in Mecca, California. The quality of the ones I've bought from them have been impressive.

You can order dates from them via their website, 7HotDates.com.

The Date People

The Date People run an organic date farm in Niland, California. Although their prices are higher than Bautista, I've gotten a lot of high-quality dates from them over the years. Their website is currently down, you can call them to get the lowdown at (760) 359-3211.

Other Exotic Fruit

Justin is a friend of mine and a raw foodist who recently got into the fruit shipping business.

He lives in Miami, Florida and buys his fruit from the farms in the Homestead and Miami area.  If you need mamey sapote, jackfruit, apple bananas, mangoes, lychees, or most other tropical fruit varieties, Justin can probably help you out.

He can be reached at (305) 757-6913.

Jourdan's Beautiful Food

Jourdan Gray sells a wide variety of tropical produce he purchases from local farmers in the Miami/Homestead area of Florida.

You can visit his website here.

Heritage Food Paw Paws

You're going to pay a pretty penny for them, but you can get yourself paw paws shipped to from heritage foods when they have them in stock.
