Melons/Mangos/Rainier Cherries - or other gourment fruit gift?
I would like to send spectacular melons as a gift. Packaging isn't important but the quality of the product is. I googled for a while but came up empty handed.
If not melons, perhaps exceptional mangos or cherries? I have ordered Harry and David pears (great but out of season) and Frog Hollow Peaches (great, but she is not fond of peaches) before with good results, but I'm told she prefers "sweet" fruits to "sweet-tart" (i.e. peach) fruits. Maybe white peaches are okay.
The recipient is in LA and considering the warm weather and shipping, closer the better...
The Olsen's in Sunnyvale had AMAZING crates of hand-packed huge bing cherries for shipment a few weeks ago, I bet they are still available. Their Ranier cherries and white donut peaches are also superb.
