I had really looked forward to receiving my “surprise” box of fresh vegetables and fruit Both the assortment and the quality were a disappointment compared to the referral I had to the Friuit Cart! It is winter in Totonto and I did not get a single typical winter squash e,g. Acorn, butternut, spaghetti. No parsnips or rutabaga. These are the more typical seasonal vegetables. I received: a bag of 3 large Romaine lettuces; a small box of assorted baby tomatoes; a small bag of assorted baby carrots; 2 sweet potatoes; 1 red pepper; 1 green pepper; pkg of 5 baby cucumbers; a small bunch of broccoli and a large lovely celery though I had particularly, in my order, requested no celery please! Re the quality- generally good though the cucumbers were soft as was the broccoli. And 3 big Romaine are too much for this type of delivery box.
Re the fruit box: nice but nothing new or exciting. 2 oranges; 2 lovely gala apples; 2 plums and 2 peaches; box of strawberries and one of blueberries; cubed pineapple- really good! 5 bananas- ready to eat- not green enough to ripen over a few days The green grapes were amazingly big and good but the purple grapes were not so nice. The peaches and plums were not good at all! These should not be on a winter box. I would have liked a variety of oranges and apples at this time of the year. These items offer better quality in the winter!
Because variety of items was limited, I found quantity lacking. In 5 days I was back at the store for more fruits and veggies. And I cook for 1 person.
Will I order again- I will try again in the summer when there is a greater assortment of fresh produce. I like to be surprised with new foods to try!
I also included an order for lemon squares. The were very small and sweet. Madagascar chicken was delicious.
Service was good. Thank you for the opportunity to give you feedback.
It's a bit pricey but the quality of the produce makes up for it! Pretty each item was super fresh and perfect with no blemishes or anything.
