I'd like to send a gift of roughly 5-10 pounds of blood oranges to a friend in New York. I've found some possibilities including grovestand.net and www.ripetoyou.com, but I've don't know anyone who's ever tried the former, and the latter only sends in fairly large shipments (which results in huge mailings costs).
If you have shipped CA fruit with success, I'd be grateful if you could recommend the farm or company you used. If possible, I'd love to support a smaller, local farm (I'm in Orange County), and it'd be great to keep costs down, but the most important thing is reliably delicious fruit.
Thanks very much for any suggestions!
