I have gotten completely rotten melons in the last 3 orders from fresh direct- so rotten that they were obvious and should NEVER have been sent out in the first place. I mean the fruit felt like a balloon, like it was filled with "jelly-water" -not just a bit overripe! So rotten that when you picked them up (in my case just to throw them in the garbage) you had to handle them so carefully so as not to let your fingers go into the rotten fruit! Completely rotten! Disgusting! I order weekly and I know they credit back always. But I am fed up. I want fruit I would have chosen if I were shopping at the store. Any fruit monger- heck, an untrained stock boy- could easily have been able to tell these melons were completely rotten. It is insulting to be sent rotten fruit over and over again!
Has anyone else been getting rotten fruit also?
