If the shipping address is located in the 1 or 2 day shipping range (in the map above) then UPS Ground can be used. Otherwise, please select UPS 2nd Day or UPS Overnight shipping for your order.

Generally speaking, we do not ship perishable products on Thursdays and Fridays if they will be in transit over the weekend.

Perishable gifts cannot be shipped to International addresses, Post Office Boxes or addresses outside the continental United States (Alaska or Hawaii).

Shipping to California

Because of California law, we cannot ship fruit to California.
