"Farmers Market Mix Box" is not just a name - it's a very nice selection of our February-March fruit. We had good results offering our Berkeley Farmers Market range of citrus and avocados nationwide via our webstore, so here we go again.
We've adjusted the box a bit this year - fewer Fuerte avocados, and more Kishus.
This is small-batch farming: we'll have a total of 300 boxes this year. There a 1-box limit per customer, please.
Nine pounds of gorgeous organic fruit - direct from our grove to your door! We ship the avocados and citrus fresh picked, so the avocados will arrive still firm but half-ripe. Enjoy your citrus for a few days while your avocados become soft and ready to eat.
Farmers Market Mix box available by mail order: Fuerte avocados, Page tangors, Bearss limes, and Kishus. All certified organic and grove-direct.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
Seedless Kishu: This tiny heirloom mandarin, originally from China by way of Japan, is our earliest-season mandarin. Kishus are totally seedless, deliciously sweet and super-easy to peel.
Page: Deep, intense flavor which matches deep, intense rind and flesh color. Few seeds. Difficult to peel, but Page lovers cut wedges to eat or make juice. Chefs love Pages for frozen desserts because the intensity of flavor stands up to freezing and sugar.
Bearss Lime: Yellowy-green, juicy, and seedless, tree-ripe Bearss limes are a revelation.
We allow our Bearss limes to get ripe on the tree, and the difference is astounding! Flavor, rind perfume, and juiciness abound.
Fuerte avocado: Before the Hass took over, this was the gold standard.Green-skinned, pear-shaped, rich and creamy. Harder to ship in bulk because of their thin skin, you won’t see Fuertes often in the stores. Our favorite avocado.
1. Because of shipping times to the Eastern U.S., we ship Monday and Tuesday only, so fruit will arrive by week's end and not risk sitting outside in freezing weather over a weekend.
2. If you are in a state that freezes, we strongly recommend shipping to an address where someone will receive the fruit and bring it indoors; in the past we've had fruit freeze on a doorstep and cannot be responsible if it does.
