Have you ever tried to grow strawberries? It takes a lot of knowledge, a lot of effort, and a lot of time (years) before you get a bush that produces fruit worth picking. However, home-growers like me never seem to get a big and bounteous crop. Not enough to satisfy the dreams of homemade jam, ice cream topping, syrups, pies, and other delicious goodies that we want to make from it.
So we are left to go searching in the stores for our ripened-fruit addiction, only to realize that the quality of the store produce leaves a lot to be desired. For this very reason, I love the fruit that Harry & David ships to me. There’s no need to spend 6 months under the hot summer sun, coaxing my fruit to grow. There’s no need to shop at the stores, only to come home with lackluster produce. There’s no reason to do anything at all, but wait for your fruit to be delivered right to your front doorstep. Not only is the fruit guaranteed fresh and irresistibly tasty, but the variety of fruit that Harry & David offers every month is such a lovely treat. It’s shipped right from the source, so even if it’s too early for that fruit to be grown in the area where I live, it’s ripe and delicious where it is grown and packaged, then sent right to me. It’s a fabulous arrangement!
My kids couldn’t wait to eat the strawberries that were shipped to us, packaged perfectly so as to eliminate any moisture or bruising. We sliced them up and ate them in our chicken and spinach salad. We mulched some up and had strawberry lemonade, and we made a fresh compote with the remaining strawberries, which we served atop our pancakes for breakfast. I absolutely LOVE having fresh fruit, right at my fingertips. You should give Harry & David a whirl. Get your monthly shipments started now!
